Default bilstien leveling shocks

Hey guys Im new on the board and had some questions on the shocks. First off everybody Ive called said they were on back order. Is there anywhere I can get these shocks now?
If not what other options are out there. My truck should be in 2 weeks from now.

Hi and a warm Carolina welcome to the best RAM ForumZ on the web. How about using the link in my SIG to visit the Newbie Checkin to introduce yourself and posting a few photos of your truck?

There are many reverences to different leveling kits, the 5100's seem to the be the easiest solution.

I went with the Bilstein 5100's as well and as you said, they're all on backorder. But I'm being patient as the Bilsteins are definitely what I want.

After searching all of the threads on this forum I decided to use the Bilsteins vs. a standard leveling kit. I've found that the people on this forum are more knowledgable, useful and respectful than any other forum so I'm taking everyone's advice. I'm not sure about the 2011 but from what I've read if you do a standard leveling kit with stock shocks on an '09 or '10 you'll get the death wobble.

Good luck with your search. I'm sure you'll find all of your options here and figure out the best one.

I too had an order with shock wharehouse, but with the huge backorder on Bilsteins, I went in search of......and found them. Hope this helps some members before they run out!
