    Just a heads up for all....

    We are facing price increases from two of our major suppliers, KING and RCD/Bilstein.

    Starting with KING, they are raising the entire line by 5% beginning June 1st, 2011. That will include all OE Replacement shocks (Tacoma coil-overs), PR Series, Race Series, Air Shocks, Bumps, Coil springs, and replacement parts. A straight 5% across the board. Orders placed before 06/01/2011 will still receive current pricing.

    Now Bilstein...

    This one is a bit more complicated. We know the prices will go into effect on June 15th, 2011. And it will affect the Tacoma 5100 shocks, both RCD and Bilstein Part #s, and both 1st and 2nd Gen. The initial pricing we have seen, reflects a huge increase. The new price is almost $54 more per front shock!!:eek: That has not been finalized but, we're scrambling to get in a stock order before the price jumps up. We will keep our pricing as is, until we run out of the shocks that we purchase at the cheaper cost. As you know, we will continue to do the most we can for all TW members.

    Once we run out of the lower cost inventory, we will adjust our pricing and let you all know. Sorry for the bad news, but we appreciate your patience and understanding!

    All the best,
    Marco & Sonny

    Edit: Sonny just got off the phone with RCD, and we committed to buying a HUGE amount of shocks from them, between now and the end of the year. This will keep our cost down for a little while longer. Now our problem goes back to whether Bilstein can keep up with demand or not. We're still waiting for rear 2nd Gen Tacoma shocks....

    Yeah, only on the fronts shocks, so just over $100/pair. And that's the "Jobber" price, so it will be a little less on the retail level.
