    OMEs are in stock. That''s who I ended up going with. Didn't feel like waiting and I liked the idea of being able to use trim packers to level.

    Trust me, the money wasn't there and my wife tells me everyday! But, you only live once and it's only money. Good luck, everyone I spoke to told me middle of June to middle of July. But, they said that Bilstein is known for not making the delivery dates.

    Ok so i talked to someone at Bilstein today and they actually told me that they dont produce the struts for 95-04s... They said that a company that is "contracted out" to them does called "RCD" so they dont know when they will come off of backorder... Has anyone ever heard this story or is this guy full of crap?

    It was my understanding and I believe that it was Wheeler's also told me that RCD (Race Car Dynamics) is a contractor that makes the 5100 adjustables for them. They also implied that they were rather "lax" with their delivery dates. I know that RCD always used the Billies in their suspension lifts, I guess they worked out a manufacturing deal to "produce/modify" the 5100s to make leveling kits. At any rate, good luck on tracking some down!

    Well, it's mid-July. Are the 5100s in stock anywhere?

    Good luck.

    Once my wife gets off my back about finances, I would like to get a set to put on my truck.

    Heard from Wheelers today that the new estimate is October for front 5100s. They have the rears in stock.

    I'm thinking of OME in the front and 5100 in the rear as I really don't want to wait until October...
