Default Bilstein shocks for ‘94..any leads?

My car’s ride has been getting gradually worse especially with a passenger. Confirmed by Marc H that it needs shocks. I bought it with 13K mi in 2014, now has 63K mi daily driven in Chicago including winters if there’s no snow on the ground. I’m dreading driving it this winter with bad shocks.

Word from Bilstein is they’re running the line Jan/Feb ‘19 but they’ve been pushing the date for a while now. Does anyone have a lead on existing stock for a ‘94?

My spine and teeth will be forever grateful!

It looks like Bilstein finally produced the shocks after a 2 year backorder. They’re available at summit, ecklers and rockauto (cheapest). I should receive mine by next week then off to Marc. Hoping it’s the right part.

Can anyone please 100 % confirm these are available again? Rockauto states 3-day delay (I don't really know what that means).

Bought mine a few weeks ago from Rockauto. Just had them installed by Marc H and picked up the car yesterday.
