it's unfortunate, but common with JB and their SS-SYE... I forget which piece (shaft or housing) but one of them is outsourced... fine as long as the quality is consistent, but you'd think they'd do a better job planning ahead being this isn't the first time it's happened... though I'm surprised it happened THIS early in the year - usually it's around may-june they go on backorder. I guess everybody jumped on it with their tax refunds knowing past backorder issues. Glad I got my order in when I did
No, that link for Amazon is no where near... that's your joe-basic standard length SYE.
I think Tera makes a short one... not quite as short as JB, and from what I've heard, not quite the quality.... but I haven't heard anything horrible about it. I guess if you MUST have extra short, it's not a bad alternative given the preferred will be unavailable for an unknown length of time.
yes, Tera does... just found it: http://www.teraflex.biz/231-extreme-short-shaft.html
