I had a good look for these a couple of weeks ago, and could not find anything either.

All those bilsteins seem to be universal fit as the fitment is listed for 2.8 through to diesels..

There are brand new prefacelift oem front shocks on
ebay https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/184700043...YAAOSwKAJbPiBA

those along with original audi springs from tradition surely would be a much better fit? if you look up what colour dots are on your current springs chances are tradition will have them. I bought a set for new ones for my 2.8 6 months ago at around 170 euro each.

Bit more info back from Bilstein

I asked which of the 2 kits would be more suitable for a 2002 S8

BILSTEIN B12 PRO KIT - 46-193810
https://www.bilstein-shocks.co.uk/pr...a3c8e4a7&_ss=r
CAR FITMENT: A8 (4D2, 4D8)
3.7 quattro
4.2 quattro (03/94-09/02)
CH.Nr.: 4D-Y-020000
VA: lowering (expertise): 25 mm; axle load to: 1254 kg
HA: lowering (expertise): 25 mm; axle load to: 1230 kg

BILSTEIN B12 PRO KIT - 46-193834
https://www.bilstein-shocks.co.uk/pr...a3c8e4a7&_ss=r
CAR FITMENT: A8 (4D2, 4D8)
3.7 quattro
4.2 quattro (11/98-09/02)
CH.Nr.: 4D-1-000 001
VA: lowering (expertise): 25 mm; axle load to: 1254 kg
HA: lowering (expertise): 25 mm; axle load to: 1230 kg

They have responded to say that they are only listed for A8 not S8 which i guess makes sense as they lower the A8 to S8 spec.

confirmed shocks contained in each kit are

46-193834:
- 24-066785 (front axle)
-24-026161 (rear axle)

46-193810:
-24-026093 (front axle)
-24-026161 (rear axle)
