Default Bilsteins for a 3.0 flex fuel

My Ranger is a 99 4x4 with a 3.0. The shocks are blown and in trying to order some new ones on 4WP they told me Bilstein 4600's were not made for my truck. I found that very odd and asked him to check for a different engine size and boom he found them. I then checked the Bilstein website and same scenario. My question is, has anyone else ran into this problem? Has anyone put 4600's on a 3.0 with success? Why would there be no shock made by Bilstein for such a common truck?

I ordered the shocks anyways but if I've made a mistake and need to get something else before install maybe I could be steered in the proper direction.

Thanks ahead of time for your input!

Default Re: Bilsteins for a 3.0 flex fuel

Engine size should have little to do with it. The newer FX4 trucks came with Blistens from the factory. Basically, if the shocks fit a 98-2007 4wd truck (or 2wd Edge/Sport) you should be good to go.
