Which Bilsteins?

I have a 2018 F250 leveled with 35" tires. I put the Bilstein 5100s on the front which have proven to be a definite improvement over stock. My problem is I can't confirm that Bilstein makes replacements for the rear. Their website does not show anything for the rears. I know I have seen posts with people having replaced both front and rear. Can anybody give me a part number for these? Thanks

here is what I found on Amazon . CA. If the front part matches yours, then the rear is the correct on. I think this is for stock, not necessarily a lift.

Use the rears that fit a 2016......then change the lower bushing to one that fits the 9/16" mounting stud or just drill the existing hole in the shock out to 9/16". Drill slow with oil so the bushing doesn't get too hot and it'll work great.

Here are the part numbers for the 9/16" Sleeves and Bushings
9/16" Sleeve BSN-195452
3/4" Bushing BSN-2202G

Just press old ones out and replace.

Last time I checked, Bilstein had not released the rear shocks or a steering stabilizer for the 2017+ Super Duty. Ive been running the front shocks for a while now and they made a huge difference. I've been holding out and waiting for the rear shocks and a steering stabilizer but not sure how much longer I can wait.

Are the 5100's just for a lifted truck? Or can they be used on a stock truck (on the front). I called 4wheel drive .com and the guy told me the 5100's were just for lifted trucks---- but I thought guys had been using them on stock rigs too. I have a stock truck and want to get the Bilsteins on it. He told me to go with the 4600's.

I bought these for my 2018 F250 FX4 and they were about 4 inches shorter extended than my stockers.
Not putting them on until further notice.

Is your truck stock or lifted? Trying to find the part number for the front for a stock truck (for the 5100's)

Stock FX4 rears.
I'm going to pull on of the rear shocks off again and compare it to the Bilstein's before I send them back.
