IIRW, the 811 part is softer, 857 is harder (stiffer), but both fits OK.
Mine is done with the 811, Eric's is 857. As for the installation, 811's
rubber outside needs to be frozen (1/2 an hour in the freezer) to install
easily, with a liberal coat of dish soap.
On the other hand, the 857 all metal outside will slide in more easily, if
you have enough force provided.
So, use the 857, you just have to know that they don't last as long as the
811 if you have a stock suspension with the long travel springs.
