  • I just went on Turner's site today, and the springs showed an ETA of 3/12. So I just ordered them on there. We'll see what happens...

    • Wow, great job mwagner10702
      Now at least the dampers are taken care of. I didn't realize the re-valving was so much - I can't remember who I spoke with that does it but never thought to ask about the price. Just assumed it was cheaper than a new damper

      Thanks!
      Not that I know of - I would just make sure your name is on the spreadsheet in post 1 page 1. He may have ordered more than requested just in case, he never really told me that much.

      I bought another full set with swaybars from another enthusiast last week as the opportunity presented itself but will still get a set of the springs anyway.

              I think the site has said in stock for months now.. That's why I wanted to see the actual springs when (if) they show up. I put in an order back in Nov with the same link until I realized they weren't actually in stock yet.

              • What is up with Bilstein? Did they have a factory burn down or something?
                Its crazy that these simple common dampers are so hard to get.
                Im reading through this thread and what used to be a staple shock seems endlessly back ordered.
                Or is it just because our cars are old now?

                  I just contacted them via the live chat function and told them that my order status didn’t change, but I noticed the springs were in stock. They changed my order to reflect the actual status and as of today I have a tracking number and ETA too.

                    The B8s are available from numerous outlets (i.e. Bimmerworld, ECS, Turner). All show as having them in stock.

                      The B8's were temporarily unavailable though no real solid reason was given. The best excuse I heard was they had to switch the machines as they use different formats for different batches and they had to play catchup. It shouldn't be difficult to get them now although there was a price increase.
                      As for the Jstock version... They won't build them for some reason and Will said he doubts those will happen in the near future if at all. Mwagner10702 did give excellent alternatives though! Econoline shocks - who would have thought

                        Mine shipped yesterday (3/14). Kudos to Will (and everyone involved) for making this happen.

                          • Ya'll did great on this project. I dont have a need for these (I have a very old set of the originals in my basement),,, but I love seeing genuinely cool E30 parts come "back" to the market place.
                            Great job.

                            • YES!!!!!! holy crap we did it. That's amazing. Putting my order in on the 1st for a backup set - will try to convince a buddy to get one for his project as well. Wonder how many he got in this batch

                              Edit: technically I think the spreadsheet was already started by someone, not sure who but thanks to them big time wherever they are.
