I bent one of my fronts back in early December and ordered a new pair. The guy said I got the last ones in the country. I would email RE directly and ask what the eta is.

"Unfortunately our shipment has been delayed and we will probably not see them until mid February.We have been doing business with the same manufacturer for many years and we have the utmost confidence in their product however the economy has somewhat changed the lead times on many products.We appreciate your patience and apologize for any inconvenience this delay may cause….Mike"

thats what ive been told, so just waiting on further notice.

We ordered some RE 4" springs back late last year.
We did get them but it took some time.
If memory serves, it was close to 2 months.

Worth the wait in my opinion.

RE 2.5" Extreeme Duty kit #5530

I ordered a Rubicon Express 2.5" Extreme Duty suspension kit #5530 (Extreme springs were no longer available so they substituted them for std duty #1430 springs) early Dec. from Jeepinoutfitters. They had the parts ship directly from Rubicon Express as they were available. I got the springs and most of the hardware in 3 weeks. It took 4 weeks to get the shocks. At 6 weeks, Jeepinoutfitters had to get the brake lines and front greasable shackles from other outfitters inventory to close out my order.

I would call them and see what kind of lead time they have, if you don't like it cancel the them and order BDS springs.

Not sure why BDS spring won't work SOA, mine seem to be doing rather well. Either way, it's an option.

I almost went bds to see how they hold up. I really liked the ride of the re's so I stuck with them even though I mangled one. If they had been bds I probably would have got a free replacement minus $100 in shipping.
