searching for Bilstein shocks

I have a 2018 Forester 3011DS and we are trying to order Bilstein shocks for the front and back. They seem to be backordered everywhere. Does any one know of someone that may have these shocks in stock? The model numbers are Front
33-187570 and rear 33-176857. Thank you

I had the same issue when looking for shocks for my Titan. I just patiently searched all the internet parts houses I could until I found one that had stock and reasonable prices. I forgot where I ended up ordering them from but even they had to ship one set from two different warehouses. I got one rear shock one day and the other the next.

Sometimes a phone call to the vendor can get you an expected "in Stock" date.

Rock Auto appears to have them in stock. Probably the best price you'll find too.

Koni Alternative

I just wanted to say I put Koni shocks (front and back) on my 2019 Sunseeker 2850 (31ft) and they are great, in case you can't find Bilsteins.

I had a rear bilstein snap off, yes it broke off on a recent trip. Fortunately we were having a lift system installed and they noticed it. Had to replace broken shock with a Monroe. Now fighting to get it covered on warranty. Company told us it is backordered and still have not honored warranty. They wanted more pictures.

I've done business with them before and was satisfied.

I would avoid working with shock warehouse. Initially it sounded like they could ship immediately. After waiting over 4 weeks I finally cancelled the order and got the shocks elsewhere.

Supply chain issues may be the problem. We need to replace our heat pump for our house and to find any reputable brand is a real problem. Building contractors are building new houses by the thousands, and that adds to the problem we're having.

Two years ago I replaced my shocks with Bilsteins. Had no problem getting them through Rock Auto.
A friend of mine replaced his shocks with Koni shocks. He's very happy with them.
