Default Pss9 out of stock everywhere?!

Anyone know where to get the Bilstein pss9’s at a decent price? Everywhere I have called is back ordered or can no longer get them... the few places that have them
on hand are way over priced.

Sounds like they've been perhaps discontinued?

You don't want them anyways. Too soft for any kind of real performance driving and the Ohlins are just as comfy on the road. The S2000 is one of the few cars where this shock isn't really an upgrade in performance. It will let you lower the car and they'll ride real nice but the spring rates are just far too soft if you actually enjoy driving the car hard.

...But for street and occasional track use, as replacements for worn stock suspension, they're excellent. Stiffer than any year stock suspension. Cheaper than Ohlins. Infinitly revalvable. Can be made to perform at very high level. Off the shelf damping supports higher spring rates if desired.

Its getting harder to find used stock stuff in decent shape. Choices that are as good or better than stock, with a reasonably long service life, on a budget, are surprisingly difficult to find.

If you dd and don't want downtime every 2-3 years waiting for rebuilt suspension turnaround, not many solid choices. PSS fill that niche well.
