Default T1 suspension SCAM!

Why is GM selling these kits for non MRSC Z51's when the shocks are the same part number as the stock Z51 non MRSC?

The problem:
This kit comes with shocks with following part numbers: Front 22873513 Rear 22873509. Both of these parts are marked as discontinued(!) When you check with dealers, they tell you that 23202880 and 23202881 are replacement parts. However these parts also happen to be the part numbers currently shown by parts catalog for Z51 FE3. So in other words, are we supposed go back to stock FE3 shocks when they wear out??? Even though it's supposed to be discontinued, when you buy the $2880 T1 kit, it comes with those specific shocks.

Checking with (a forum sponsor) dealer:
Anyway, I contacted TrunkMonkeyParts, and asked what I should do,
Interestingly, they told me that the recent T1 kits also started shipping with those new part numbers!
