Is there any place to purchase the DRM Bilstein shocks these days? I cant seen to find them anywhere and everyone talks about it being the best thing they have done to their Z06. Any info is appreciated.

DRM stands for Doug Rippie Motorsports. The way you order them is to go to their website and place an order. Simple as that. Or call Randy.

There was a new set in the for sale section a couple days ago, probably gone but check, worth the switch.

When I talked to Randy on the phone a couple days ago, he mentioned that he still had them in stock, but he also said lots of orders were coming in daily, so if anyone wants a set, sooner is better than later.

Put mine on (used the Bilstein bushings since its mostly a street car) and finally got to drive it yesterday... Definitely a more planted feel overall. Top things noticed are 1) the primary issue these address is legit - cornering (with throttle) on rough pavement is much more settled, 2) overall ride (especially highway) is smoother/softer, 3) body roll reduced - side to side responsiveness is noticeable tighter

You must be "the lucky caller"! I ordered the DRM shocks with bushings last Monday 2-4-19 and have not received any shipping confirmation or returned messages. Been calling everyday with no luck. Too bad their mailbox is also full.

#1 is huge and where I always feel stock Z's are lacking. Glad to hear they make a positive difference. I have always heard good things about them. Nice choice!!

I spoke with Randy again once since that last post. He has mentioned that they are buried in orders and are flat out trying to fill orders and get stuff out the door (for these shocks as well as everything else they offer) so I'd say keep trying. Seems like they should hire some help if it's that crazy, or at least someone to answer the phone. Like others have mentioned, great guy and I genuinely believe he is doing all he can to accommodate customers.

You are 100% correct! I received a call today and they will ship out Monday coming up and can't wait!
