Bilstein shocks are one of the best shock absorbers you can buy and it’s no secret. The problem lately has been a large increase in back orders and long lead times on popular Bilstein shock absorbers.
Bilstein announced today that they are taking new measures to combat the long back order times.
According to Steven Beaty, President of Bilstein of America Aftermarket & Motorsports, “First, our plan includes an immediate investment in additional manufacturing equipment totaling over one million dollars. Second, we have hired additional labor and transitioned to a 4 shift production model effectively operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The combination of these two actions will start to deliver increased output over the next several weeks.”
At Michigan Truck Spring, we carry a large inventory of Bilstein shock absorbers in our warehouse. We have noticed the increased lead times and are hopeful the increased production helps correct the problem. Feel free to call us at 1-800-358-4751 or email us a firstname.lastname@example.org if you need to check inventory or lead times on any Bilstein shock absorbers.
