Default sachs advantage vs. super touring

I just purchased sachs shocks and struts for my car from FCP. The website listed them as sachs advantage, which I understand is the same as boge turbo gas. But what I received were advantage fronts, and "sachs super touring rears." I was going to stick these on my car tonight, but now I'm wondering whether I should send them back.

Does anybody have experience with the "super touring," and if so, are they equivalent to the advantage (I bought these because they are supposed to have a firmer ride than stock)? The website lists them as two different models...

I am not familiar with the sache shocks because I personally only run the Bilsteins. If you don't feel comfortable running them and want to exchange the, I would recommend the Bilstein TCs. I had them on my 944T and my 855T5. They were awesome.

Well I'd read a number of positive reviews of the boge turbo/sachs advantage, so that's what I was hoping to get. I just can't tell if they are interchangeable with the "super touring"--both are gas shocks, and one thing I found online said that sachs sometimes ships them in the "advantage" box. I'd rather not return them if I don't need to.
