Rehash but want to purchase the correct item


I know this has been discussed up one side and down the other but every seems to give a different part number and I want to make sure I order the correct item.

2016 Forester 2401WS MBS - chassis is 2015 per the VIN

Sumo Springs - rear only. Correct?
part SuperSprings SSR-338-47

Bilstein Shock Absorbers - rear only. Correct?
The literature on their website says for Heavy duty and Camper - is this the ones I want?
If it is then the part is 24-177702?

I have called Bilstein in the past and left more confused after the call due to me to fully able to answer the questions of the person asking.

When I put the Bilstein part 24-177702 in Amazon it says it won't fit my 2015 MBS 3500 vehicle.

Can someone or two just confirm I have the correct part #s?

And don't worry, I am having them installed so that shouldn't be an issue. Once I order them and get them to the dealer for install I can forget all this.I have noticed everyone has a different part number listed and the manufacturer and I can't seem to get our act together.

And yes, it already has a Hellwig sway bar so I am covered there.

I am doing this leg work as my husband doesn't want to be responsible for it.

Thank you!
