14-15 rear shock issue (busted at 1500 miles) on nat backorder

So, after not driving my Jeep for nearly a month because of a "stop drive" order from FCA on my vehicle because of the lower rear control arm issue and waiting for parts & service I finally pick my GC back up yesterday. Within minutes of leaving the dealer I notice all sorts of noises coming from rear suspension. I bring it back, thinking they missed tightening something. Nope, all checked out fine. Its my rear shocks that are now busted. Something internal causing all the racket...but "its ok to drive" even though it sounds like my 93 4runner with 370,000 miles.

No ETA on parts, they are "hundreds deep" in a national backorder for them. Apparently this is a common issue as well, so I expect yet another recall. Im hoping theyll let me source my own shocks and reimburse me. Im not driving this brand new 43k Jeep clunkin around town for an unknown amount of time.

I ordered the Eibach lift just now.

Worked out an agreement with Jeep in regards to the previous recall and some compensation...
