I ordered my Bilstein HD shocks from them two weeks ago and they arrived in less than a week. $300 delivered so you can't beat that.I am about to pull the trigger on an order of Bilstein 5100s from shockwarehouse, but I am concerned about their reputation for slow delivery and credit card screwups. What is the consensus on that outfit?

Put them up for sale in TS classifieds, at worst case you take a shipping hit. Sorry to find out they dont fit.I just ordered Bilstein 5100s for my 2010 and low and behold they did not fit (some 2010s and all 2011s have a new strut mounting plate). Not good considering I had to pay the mechanic for the failed install which was not cheap. The mechanic scratched them up trying to install them so they are no longer in like new condition.
Pros: Shocks were in stock at a good price with pretty fast shipping.
Cons: Shocks did not come with a reciept
Shocks did not fit even though it was the correct part number for my vehicle
Must send an email to get the RME or whatever number so you can return them
20% restocking fee
Shipping them back costs a pretty penny
Must be in resellable like new condition.
Basically, I could pay to ship them back, take a 20% hit and hope they are considered in like new condition. This would include finding new shipping boxes since the shocks expand once you cut the plastic ties. Had they fit, I would have been another happy customer. However, it's really a gamble because if they don't your up a creek.
