We buy Bilstein dampers from Bilstein. Bilstein manufacturers them.
Say that Bilstein manufacturers 1,000 pieces in a given production run. They may keep 200 pieces to sell directly to consumers themselves, ship 400 pieces to MM and the remaining 400 pieces to six other companies. If Bilstein has back orders of 150 pieces on this part and MM has back orders of 450 pieces on this part, then you should order them from Bilstein as they will not be out of stock. The problem is that we don't know how many pieces Bilstein is making in this production run, how many pieces they need for back orders, how many pieces they are shipping to other customers, etc. The only piece of information that MM has, is how many pieces we are back ordered. We don't even know for certain what quantity Bilstein is going to ship us. Given that, there is no way for me to be able to tell you who to order the product from to get it the soonest.
If you want to order them from MM, just go to the MM website. We do not bill your CC until the order ships.
