bilstein rear shock part #?

I noticed when shopping around that some of the places sell the rear part # for 98 cobras as B46-2148 which after checking is actually the rear # for 87-93 5.0 mustangs, but places sell it for my year. After checking with a bilstein distributor the correct part # for 94-98 is BE5-6418. I recently bought a set of used bilsteins off of a local guy on e-bay that he said he didnt have the part #'s, but when I received them today they are printed right on the shocks, and it turned out to be the B46-2148. I am curious if anyone knows what the difference between these two different shocks is. Is the compression/rebound different, or the length of the shock? Any help on this is greatly appreciated! Thanks

The shocks are supposedly the same... the newer ones just come with a bumpstop (since you don't have the bumpstops on the axles).
