Has anyone else found this
Bilstein B8's for the front are on back order till July. :roll:
I was hoping to get some fitted pretty soon.
Anyone know of any alternatives.

Cheers

I've got a broken spring so decided to go all out and fit B12 kit but I'm having same problem as you. I ordered the kit from a German eBay seller but they quickly replied that they couldn't deliver until end of July so that was useless. I've tried a Polish seller now so will see what they say. Fortunately, it's a rear spring that's broken so if that order fails then I might just buy the Eibach spring kit and the rear B8s. Then I'll do the fronts when they become available.

Nemesismoo had b6 shocks fitted to Eibach springs on his 93 aero ss , try searching his old post but I think he had no problems with this setup as b6 and B8 have the same valveing it's just B8's are slightly shorter for lower springs

I also chose the B6 shocks with the Eibach springs in October 2015 for my 93SS Aero.

I think I will wait for the B8's tbh. Gives me more time to save for other mods!

The B6s are not that much cheaper so I'll get the B8s. The Polish seller also didn't have them so I've given up on the B12 set and bought the Eibach springs and rear B8s now. I'll buy the front B8s when they come back in stock.
