Default Still cant find Bilstein 5100s

Does anyone know a vendor that has Bilstein 5100s in stock? I've called all over for weeks and everyone is back ordered. Most vendor websites show them in stock but are actually back ordered once I inquire about them.

Any ideas?

I ordered 2 separate sets over the last month, didn't get either..One got shipped but oddly enough the vendor said the box got "damaged and was leaking oil" and had got return to sender (SpeedShop USA from Amazon..don't buy form them), 2nd set is now on back order. Unfortunately they are on back order directly from Bilstien. All we can do is wait.

Seems ridiculous to me thay a company can't even remotely keep up with the demand for their product. I called Bilstein directly and they didn't have any information. You would think that with something as simple as a shock to produce they could produce a surplus stock. It's not like they would expire.

I just got off the phone with ajusa and they told me they are backordered until late july....amazon shows them in stock but theyre a little more expensive. I think ill wait until they come down in price and are more readily available unless someone finds them in stock for 180 or less shipped

youd be surprised...I sell ford parts for a living and you wouldn't believe some of the stuff that goes on back order and for how long...the older edges have issues with fuel tank leaks and have for some time now, well they are recalled and if a vehicle comes in with a leaking tank the car goes down and ford puts them in a long term rental. These particular tanks cost about 1800$ retail and are on backordered until the 3rd quarter of this year. They have been recalled since around this time last year.

They're not nearly as good but, you could go with the Ranchos if you have to have them now. Or, you could go with Fox. More expensive but even better if you want to spend the money.
