Hey I just thought I should throw out a word of caution when ordering new rear Bilstein shocks for your truck. I ordered front and back shock replacements (both Bilstein) from auto anything on October 6th. I received the fronts a week later, and as of right now my "expected shipping date" is 12/4/14 for the rear. :ripped:This is the third time my shipping date has been pushed. Long story short called every off-road site, suspension specialists, and shock dealers I could find and everyone told me the rear Bilsteins are on back order. Finally found a guy at Web Off Road who seemed to know what was going on and heard that Bilstein is way behind their production of their OEM parts due to a factory move and getting aftermarket shocks from them is a ways out. He is calling tomorrow to check with Bilstein to see exactly what kind of wait we're talking, but everywhere I checked has no rear Bilsteins. Thought I'd try to save someone else the headache of dealing with this, I'm ordering some Pro Comps tomorrow until the Bilsteins are available... whenever that may be...

No problem! Should have updated the post when I found out, but O'Reilly's carries them and they are in stock. Also, I got mine in from AutoAnything about a week ago. They ride awesome. Good luck!

hello from cincy ohio. I had the same issue with my bilstein shock order from auto anything. I received the fronts in just a couple of days but had to wait 9 or 10 weeks for the rears. considering the price it was worth the wait I quess, I paid like $237 for all four.
