    Replaced mine with bilstein's, Summit has them in stock. Couldn't find any chains in my area that carried them, all special order. I believe Bilsteins are OE.

    I just replaced mine with Bilsteins and am pleased with them. (I ordered from Summit Racing late on Friday night and received them the following Tuesday, mid-day. However, I'm in NC and believe they shipped from GA, so YMMV.)
