Default edge shocks or standard shocks

I just got this 2001 ranger. It needs a few things, one of those is new shocks. I am a fan of the gabriel shocks autozone sells, the white ones. I have had shocks from advanced auto before and they are terrible.

Anyhow, whats the difference in the shock for edge vs standard. Is the edge shock a little beefier? Looks like the specs are the same as far as collapsed lenght, extended and overall. And the mount tabs look to be the same.

Any one chime in on this?
