Where can I order these shocks?

I got a 97 F250 7.3 with a solid axle conversion. it has a 4'' lift and I am in need of new shocks. I ran the Bilstein 5100s on my lifted 98 Tj, so I want to go with them. however on 4wheelparts.com, they are listed but does not specify the what size lift that they will fit. can anyone recommend a site to order from ?

What you need to do is remove one of the shocks and completely extend it. Then measure from end to end. Then completely collapse the shock and do the same measurement. Once you have this go to bilstein's site give them the specs on your truck (type and engine w/ type of lift) and they will get you new shocks hope this helps

Bilstein makes 5100s specifically designed for your truck with a 4" lift:
97 F250 4" lift front shocks
Required sleeve for front shocks
97 F250 4 - 6" lift rear shocks

I"m thinking i need new shocks on the front of mine. I put a 2.5" leveling kit on 2 months ago and i had almost new shocks at the time and now both front shocks are bad. Will these Bilsteins work for that application?
Or maybe these for mine?
