Bilstein 5100 shocks on backorder

Anyone know of where I can pick up a set of Bilstein 5100 rear shocks for a 3" lift FJC? Toytec has them on backorder and not sure when they will come in.

Try Top Gun Customz... They are a site sponsor and good... I ordered a set of 5100's from them myself for a OME 2 inche lift (OME 895e and OME 883in front)...

How do you like your Hankook MT's... How much did they effect your mpg and how are they wearing?

The Hankooks have been a decent AT tire. I wasnt real impressed with them in mud. But, they did great at Moab and Ouray. Kinda loud on the highway. The wear has been incredible. Ive got 50k on them and still have plenty left. I rotate the 5 every 6k. For the money, they are hard to beat. I will give top gun customz a call.

I ordered a 3" Ultimate kit today that usually comes with the 5100s and toytec called me and told me that they were indeed on backorder. The guy told me he thought that they wouldn't get any in until at least the first week of December. He also told me that Bilstein had been, and I quote, "sketchy as of late." Not really sure how to take that. He offered to swap in the Icon rears for no extra charge so I jumped on that.

Apparently everyone is out of them. I ordered the Icons instead.

Do tell ! Could it be that they are mirroring the service of Road Armor (one of the brands they are selling) ? That would be classic.

Re: Bilstein 5100 shocks on backorder

I bought a set of the extended Bilstein rears for my FJ. I purchased them from Toytec. It must have been their only set because when they finally came in stock I bought them then they were out of stock later on.

They are very well made and match my front 5100's.


They will look great once I get them installed........some day.
