What shocks for 97 F350

I have a 97 f350 with bilstein shocks on it now that have about had it and I am looking to replace them with bilsteins again possibly. I believe they are the 5100 series but for the life of me I cannot find ones for the 97 f350 online?? The truck is lifted between 4" -6" also. If anyone has any suggestions or even other shocks that would be good to use I would appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

Just got the measurements. For the drivers side front it is 23", passenger side is 23.5" and both rear shocks are 26". That is measured from the center of the bottom bolt to the center of the top bolt.
