supply problem sucks

Has anyone else had trouble getting parts? We ordered Bilstein shocks for our MH in September and they are still not in. Company says they are coming from Germany and they are stuck on a freighter.

I recently replaced the shocks on my truck with Bilsteins. Four shocks came from three different sources and in two different deliveries . Fedex for two and two separate packages delivered the same day by USPS.

To say the least it's bizarre, frustrating, and may take some creativity to overcome.

Word in the news is that we can expect the problem to continue into next year and possibly beyond.

Who knows, maybe we'll see more manufacturing back in this country but that will take time too.
