Product Updates - October 21st, 2014

Posted by Danny on 10/21/2014 to Product Updates
Steering Braces - 2nd Gen 1994 to 2001/2002 models:   All in stock, shipping same day!   I'll probably remove this from future product updates because we've had them in stock for a couple of months now and I don't think we'll ever get back to a position where they aren't in stock.  

Steering Braces - 3rd and 4th Gen 2003 to 2012 models:  We've been working really hard at getting these setup to be in stock all the time, and it looks like we'll be ready to mark them "in stock" on the site sometime next week.  Like the 2nd gen braces, they will be stocked all the time.  

T-Style Steering Linkage Kits - 2nd through 4th gen trucks:  We are finishing up our extremely long list of steering kit orders and should have these in stock in the near future.  We're buying so much tubing to build them that our suppliers are having a hard time keeping up - we bought an entire trailer load last time and are waiting on them to reload so we can get more.  If you order a steering kit today, it should ship in 3 to 4 weeks.  In a couple of weeks, that wait time should be down to 1 to 2 weeks.  We'll keep pushing to get where these are stocked all the time.  I really think we'll have these on the shelf sometime in mid to late November, possibly sooner.  The steering kits are one of our biggest sellers so it really is hard to keep up with the demand sometimes. 

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're having some trouble with customers entering the wrong drag link lengths when ordering, and that slows down the process, but as long as you can get us an accurate measurement, we can knock these out quickly. 

Track Bar Kits - 2nd gen 1994 to 2001/2002:   We are switching the HD track bar setup to where it uses a smaller version of our Extreme Track Bar Johnny Joint, rather than a bushing.  Right now we are waiting on Currie to make these joints for us and send them out.  Until they come in, we're still sending track bars with the old style bushings.  While the bushings have worked great for us, switching to joints will save time and also gives you a better product.  We're always trying to raise the bar and that's all this is.  It looks like the joints should be here the 2nd week of November but that can always change, earlier or later.  Our intention is to keep track bar kits in stock at all times, and once the joints are here I don't think we'll have any issues doing that. 

Track Bars - 3rd and 4th gen 2003 to 2012:   We're sending out the existing orders on these, and then we're going to start bending the bars here in-house to cut down on the wait times.  We want these to be a stocked item starting in November. 

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. 

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:   Believe it or not, we are shipping full suspension kits out in a couple of weeks right now.  We have the rest of the parts in stock or are able to make them in just a couple of weeks.  There are a lot of folks emailing us about the suspension kits right now so we may get into a position where we're running behind on part of the kit, but right now we are in good shape.   Spread the word!  Our suspension kits are hard to beat for overall value.  You get the strongest parts available with a much better ride, for a price that is comparable to cheaper "cookie cutter" type of lifts.  As I'm typing this, we sold a 3" kit today and everything shipped today except for the long arms.  If the kit had been ordered with short arms, the whole thing would have shipped the same day.  That won't always be the case but we're doing a really good job of keeping these parts on hand. 

Shackle Flip Kits - 2nd gen 1994 to 2001/2002:  The 2500 and 3500 versions are in stock if you have a one piece driveshaft; we're waiting on a re-supply for the tapered zero rates for the two piece driveshaft orders.  Those should be here in a couple of weeks.  The 1500 version is in stock now and should always be in stock.  We also have a couple sets of "oops" brackets where the bolt holes are not in the right spot, check out our "on sale" section for info on those if you want to save some money.  They would be great for someone who wants to weld their brackets to the frame. 

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.  If anybody has a Dana 80 stock cover they want to send in, we can start making those as well.  

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.  


Thanks,
Danny
