Product Updates - January 20th, 2015

Posted by Danny on 1/20/2015 to Product Updates
Steering Braces - 2nd Gen 1994 to 2001/2002 models:   All in stock, shipping same day!   Our new model is in stock now, so you do not need to select Borgeson or Saginaw box options any longer.  One brace fits all boxes! 

Steering Braces - 3rd and 4th Gen 2003 to 2012 models:  In stock, shipping the same day!   These have been in stock for over a month now, so I'll remove them from future updates.  They should always be in stock.  We do have a new product that bundles the Borgeson box and shaft with our steering brace, and you get a huge discount on the whole package.  We'll be doing some other package deals like this in the next couple of weeks, because it's been a big hit so far. 

T-Style Steering Linkage Kits - 2nd through 4th gen trucks:  All current orders should ship over the next two weeks, we're keeping the tapered bolts coming in nice and steady now.  We have another 6 sticks (about 108 feet!) of bolts being made right now.  The heat treating process takes some time, but is well worth it for the extra strength.  As soon as that batch of bolts gets here in a couple of weeks, we'll have steering kits in stock for the first time ever! 

Crossover Steering Kits - All Years:   We are making these to order at the moment, however as long as we have the tubing here, these are made in a few days after your order comes in.  We have even sent some kits out the next day.  We're trying to keep the most common sizes on hand so they are ready to roll.  Our new bolt-in crossover steering setup is still in testing but we should have them listed on the site soon, as the bolts have been finalized and will now go into production. 

Track Bar Kits - 2nd gen 1994 to 2001/2002:   We have some in stock at the moment, but we sell several per day and sometimes they go faster than we can reload.  Just check the product page.  If it says "In Stock," it's here.  If not, it will go out in a couple of weeks.  All track bars are going out with Johnny Joints now and we've got a huge inventory of those here at our warehouse so we shouldn't run out anytime soon, even if the manufacturer gets behind. 

Track Bars - 3rd and 4th gen 2003 to 2012:   All current orders on these have been sent out and we have some more being made to go into inventory.  Like above, if it says "in stock," then it is.  Otherwise you should plan on waiting a couple of weeks. 

Long Arm Kits - 2nd through 4th gen:   Basically we are building the long arm brackets as quickly as possible, and sending long arm orders out as fast as we can.  Depending on which setup you get (there are eight different arm options) the wait time could be a week to 6 weeks - the product pages will let you know how long to expect to wait.   We make the baddest long arms on the planet and the wait times reflect that - we can only build so many per day and are running at capacity on these until we are able to beef up our production with new equipment, which is in the works already.  We're having another company cut a few sheets of brackets to help us build some inventory while we continue at our normal pace.  

Short Arms - 2nd through 4th gen:   We make a ton of short arm kits so I'm not going to post an update for each one, but basically we are caught up on short arm orders and actually have some in stock.  Check the product pages for accurate info.  If it says "in stock," then it's here.  If it says 1 week or more, we actually will get them out pretty quickly.  We have hired some more help and are knocking control arms out within a couple of days in most cases.  Of course things always come up, so email us if you have questions before you place your order.  We have several sets of our most popular short arms in stock at the moment. 

Suspension Kits - 2nd gen 1994 to 2001/2002:   These are going out in 2 weeks to 6 weeks right now, depending on what options you order.  Long arms add a month, coilovers add 6 weeks.  The basic setup with coils, short arms, shocks, and a shackle flip go out pretty quickly, usually the same week. 

Shackle Flip Kits - 2nd gen 1994 to 2001/2002:  The 2500 and 3500 versions are in stock for both one-piece and two-piece rear driveshafts as of yesterday.  We're getting current orders out this week and then we'll have all kits back in stock again.  We're also having a sheet of shackles laser-cut to help us catch up.  Our plasma table is great but it can only go so fast, so we're calling in reinforcements temporarily until we get a new, larger, faster, better CNC table. 

Suspension Kits - 3rd and 4th gen 2003 to 2013:  We have the 3" kits shipping out in a matter of days right now, and actually they could probably go the same day depending on options.  Long arms will slow these down, and if you add the track bar then we're backed up on those, but the rest of the parts are ready to roll.  

Diff Covers - 2nd through 4th gens:   We're changing things up a little and going to start making these 100% in-house.  We were having the blanks bent elsewhere to save time, but as a way to lower costs and keep the inventory on hand, we bought a new 20 ton press and will start bending everything here.  Our plan is to keep the AAM 925, 1050, and 1150 covers in stock.  We'll probably make the Dana 60 and Dana 70 covers to order.  We're also working on Dana 80 covers, because we've had a few people ask for those.  They will be listed on the site when they are ready. 

If you have questions about a product not listed on here, first look and see if it is drop shipped.  If it's from Borgeson, Synergy, Carli, Pure Performance, or otherwise not labeled as a DOR part, then it probably drop ships.  Most product pages will say that too.  What we do is send the order in to the manufacturer or one of their top level distributors, and they ship it for us.  That saves us from having to stock a ton of merchandise, which keeps overhead down, which helps keep our costs low, which keeps our prices low.  So if you followed all of that, we do this to save you money.  And we also pass along the great savings on drop-shipped products.  Sometimes those manufacturers run into snags of their own and can't send the products out as quickly as you want.  We try to keep you up to date but with some companies we really don't get a lot of info until the order has shipped.  It's not like we can walk out to the shop and see what the hold up is.  So please be understanding that we have submitted your order and are playing the waiting game with you.   Right now we only know of delays with Pure Performance, but they are knocking orders out as fast as they can, as always. 


Thanks,
Danny
