    I ordered a pair of Bilstein 5100's on the 16th through Summit Racing, as it predicted a delivery of 2/2/21. Now it's saying not until some time in March. Lame.
    I suppose they're just that popular, that they're that backordered?
    Seems like they're not in stock anywhere, such as tirerack, 4wheel parts etc

    i believe it is a COVID issue over all, just trying to keep up with reduced forces.

    unfortunately, it will now become an economics issues to top the covid

    Maybe try to find a smaller mom and pop type retailer, I bought some 5100s for my Toyota and got them lickity split from head Strong Off Road. Not sure they have the model you need but worth a shot.

    Yeah I think you're right - sadly everything is a result of COVID now..
    It's tough to be patient because I am so eager to get the front up and throw on some bigger tires etc.

    That's not a bad idea. I'll try and see if any mom and pop shops in the Ventura, CA area have what I'm looking for in stock.

    Had to cancel two orders in Q2 2020 because there was never a ship date. That being said, I’d rather wait to get Kings the next go around!

    Where did you try ordering from before you canceled if you don't mind me asking?

    Well I've taken @Tiki 's advice and called around to essentially every local shop within about 120 miles from me, as well as headstrong offroad based on @Dantheman1540 's suggestion.
    Sadly, no luck still. I had a really nice guy at Summit do some research and get back to me with a realistic estimate of mid-May.
    I guess I gotta just keep my hopes up and periodically check ebay.
    Or I might have to look at other similar solutions from other manufacturers..
