Bilstein on back order **SIGH**

Figures, lol when I order bilsteins for my rig, they are on backorder. They are saying they'll be shipped out by the 16th. I remember ordering headers for my old stang....they said 2 weeks.....ended up being almost 4 months. I may have to settle for the ole' monroes!

They just started coming in over the last month from reading on the forums. I ordered mine June of 2013 and it took 3 weeks and from Aug 2013 for damn near a year they were on backorder. You shouldn't have to wait long now. Great mod!!

I order front and rear....the deal for just under $400. I think those where the 4600HD's. I found my driver's front strut leaking...enough to leave the inside of the rim wet. When I first saw it, I thought it was brake fluid....but a little investigating led me to the shock. It sounds blown when I hit bumps, and I get a slight vibration when I am driving. I will check my order again to see exactly what I have. I dont want to wait 2 or more weeks for these to come in..

That's a great price I'm waiting on kolak performance for my front struts last month I was going to order them but they were backed up on them as well. Good luck!

If you think 400 is a great deal for those there's something wrong. Go to crawl-offroad.com and they are 340 for the front and rear.

Re: Bilstein on back order **SIGH**

MY 2 cents on WK Bilsteins. Don't be fooled by the name; of course Bilstein makes excellent shocks, but the WK versions are frankly not a good choice. They are far too rough riding due to the very high gas pressure, overly bouncy (can you say head toss ?) and exhibit poor cornering and handling. I had them on for over a year, and couldn't wait to get rid of them. The Koni FSD's rock, no comparison !

Which ones did you have? Did you have F&R ones? 4600's or 5100's?

WK Bilsteins, front and rear, bought from Tirerack..not sure of the number designation, but they were way to high pressured, with awful rebound control.

I recently installed rear Bilsteins and at first I thought the ride was good. Now I've been driving for 2 months and the truck is hopping all over. I'm debating on installing the fronts or trying something else.
I looked for koni but only found heavy track. Whatever that means
