Bilstein part# on eshocks

After searching past threads it appears everyone agrees the Bilstein 0929 is the best replacement for the rear of a wagon. So I went to eshocks site from a link in an old post and entered my car info and it gives me the part# F4-BE5-E250-MO. Is this the correct cross reference # or is this an incorrect part?

Suscribed for info. I to am curious about this. Also what part # is reccomended for the front? Do These apply for a lowered wagon?

You might want to contact them directly. I went with the Monroe Severe Service shocks through Rockauto.

I ended up going with KYB KG5458 for the front. Paired with a set of canuck 1.5" drop spring. The wagon rides great.

Here's what Bilstein lists for B-body:

First listing is the digressive valving version--it is also an extra inch longer as far as travel, for wagon & early (91-92) body style, to aid in changing a tire, but also more "floaty" as far as behavior
http://cart.bilsteinus.com/product/24-015172/177322/RWD

This is the current listing for Impala SS and is also listed for Caprice--and it can be used on earlier cars & wagons, as long as it is understood that when the car is jacked up, the wheel is not going to drop as far. It is linear-valved.

Here is PN info for the old -0929 shock--Bilstein still offers it for other applications, so it would seem to indicate that they considered what is listed above as better for the platform than -0929:
