Bilstein part # for FX4 LII

Not sure what the correct part I should be getting for this truck. Some sites offer 2 parts: 24-188241 for stock height or 24-185271 for stock height or 0-3 in lift. These sites just offer a selection for XLT trim, but not FX4. I just to make sure I get the right part. TIA

This is the place I'm looking at: http://www.truckspring.com/suspensio...2&model=Ranger

The Bilstein replacements I got for mine is BE5-2794 (front) and BE5-2795 (rear). They are not valved exactly as the original Bilstein shocks from Ford. They are a little stiffer, which is what I wanted anyway. I am not familiar with the part number you showed.

I am pretty sure there is no difference in the shocks for a standard XLT 4WD compared to a FX4 or FX4 LII. Just make sure the shocks are for a 4WD Ranger.

Bilstein does have shocks for lifted Rangers. You do not need those if you are sitting near stock height. Mine sits up about 1.5" with a T-bar crank and air bags in the rear. I have no problems at all with the Bilsteins for stock height.
