I ordered mine from Baxterautoparts pick up next day for $32. They only have the fronts though. So I'm thinking of doing the KYB ajustable gas shocks, which I believe are around $44.

Yea, I was having a hard time sourcing some stuff, and that parts geek came through. How long did your shocks take to get in?
