Bilstein Shocks on backorder

Can anyone adivse about the Bilstein 5100's being on back order from the factory? I ordered a set over the internet from a reputable business back in July and rep stated that they are on back order from the factory till end of September. I guess Rockcrawler is helping by selling their awesome suspension kits and recommending those shocks. Just wondering if anyone knows where they might be in stock. Need set for 2.5" max travel that I getting.

Thanks

Hold on...what shocks? PM me the part numbers or post them here (I just won't see it as fast here) and I'll see whats out there.

I've got E578, E671, E175, E174s, ect in stock and ready to go from my supplier.

I'll match anyone's price too.

Sorry for the Spam, I just wanted to help.

Bilstein shocks

Marcus-
The shocks I ordered are for my upcoming purchase of the RK 2.5" max travel, but the more I read I may go with the RK 3.5" because of winch and hardtop. The shocks I ordered were the 5100's for 1.5 to 3" lift. part #'s
Front-F4-BE5-E670-H0
Rear-F4-BE5-E671-H0
I ordered through Shockwarehouse.com (which I am not displeased with by the way) for a great price and free shipping. but I was told that the 5100's I'm looking for are on backorder.They did say that if I found them anywhere else I could cancel my order.

Thanks

Adjust

I just put the Rock Krawler 2.5" lift on my jeep last week and had the same problem...after talking to a tech at RK, he told me that going up to the next size Bilstein 5100 for the rear would be fine and I would never even know it bc it only has an inch difference both collapsed and extended...The guys at Northridge told me the same thing...so...I did it and couldnt be happier...

the part # is... 33-186887

it is not on backorder

I've got the 671s available for sure right now but the 175s will work too as mentioned above this post.

I'm just getting to PMs, been under a Jeep all day.
