Rear shocks discontinued?

I was poking around gmpartsgiant.com today and discovered that the rear shocks for my 2015 SS are discontinued. Is there a replacement or are we screwed?

Saw it through to checkout on GMPartsDirect and it shows available. Boom5 5% promo code right now as well. If you attempt this yourself you will need to de-pin the strut. Good luck!

Possibly superseded?

Hopefully someone can confirm, but I believe the 2016/2017 shocks are functionally the same (possibly a different part number, hopefully without the propensity to leak).

Unfortunately they are not available at rockauto either.

If you add them to your cart, it will automatically remove them and tell you that.

Tasca parts has them. Let me put them in the cart and proceed to checkout. Hope this helps.

I still do doubt if that is conclusive or not. I just tried to purchase a part from 3 different online GM parts dealers (one of them being Tasca) and each one let me put the part in and proceed to payment. On each, I halted at that point and then called to ask a human to verify if the part was truly in stock. Each one came back and said they were out of stock.

I'm ordering some tie rods right now. The Mevotech pieces shipped. OEM inners and boot kits still 3 weeks out. I'm learning most parts will have long lead on delivery. Now this is from Summit so saves me shipping. I can go to dealership or GM online at a premium $. And see them sooner. I imagine we may be trolling GTO and G8 sites for ideas eventually to keep our babies on the road.
