I am looking to replace the Bilstein B4 shocks of my M030 sports RoW Suspension of my 2003 Carrera (996). The front ones are available ( part no 22-113337) but the rear ones ( part no 24-113359) are only available to order with over a month waiting time . Tried all the usual place down here and in the UK with no luck , if anyone has a Bilstein stockist contact to pass me that would be great just in case he has the rear ones in stock . Surprised that Design911 didn't have them in fact :violin:

I’m not. Most specialists will lean on their wholesaler/brand stock for this type of part. It’s too high value, limited sales to hold their own I’d guess. Or they have already sold out over last weeks. Whether Porsche or Bilstein directly. Delays may speed up now some countries are opening up business slowly.

What is shocking as well is the price range. For exactly the same items prices vary from 800 to 1200 euro. Only a few minutes ago I visited a major Bilstein seller not far from where I live and he will double check with Germany and confirm tomorrow a lead time of about 4 weeks he said... Reminds me of the total disappearance of 924 rear shocks (SACHS) from the market sometime ago :violin:
