Direct OEM '10 Off Road Suspension

Hi Gang,
Brand new member here, I haven't even picked up my '10 Off Road yet. The local Nissan Dealer presented it with stock BF Goodrich Rugged Trail A/T and stock Bilstein shocks as "Certified" but as is common practise here, they wait to sell it before they complete the work needed for it to pass inspection.
It took a bit of advocating for myself to convince the dealer that the shocks needed replacing. Now that I have that line item on my bill of sale, I am having to make my case that in selling an Xterra Off Road, which sports Bilstein shocks by specification, and which was equipped with Bilsteins on the lot, must replace them with Bilsteins.

The question I want to ask is: Are the Bilstein 4600 shocks the most accurate direct replacement for the Off Road? Was there a Nissan cross-branded shock they used?

Thanks for any help you can provide!

I don't know about this. Doesn't a "used" car also means it could be a trade in and if the previous owner replaced the Bilsteins with something else, then that's not the Dealers problem? Certified just means that the X passed all regulated inspections for resale regardless of what aftermarket parts that were installed on the X before the trade in. I mean, I could be completely wrong here but that's just my guess.

But for reference, I have a 2014 Pro-4x and it came with Bilsteins 4600 and BFG all terrains 265/75/16 and the 2015 came with Hankook Dynapros AT 265/75/16.
