The 639 is still available. They are just backordered since Addco has moved their production facility recently. It is taking a hell of a lot longer than normal, sure, but they have not discontinued the bar.

Even if he ordered it late last year in December that would be more than six months now.

I'd kinda need to hear it from the horse's mouth that it's not permanently backordered... "temporarily" not slated for further production.

Spoke with John within the last two weeks on the availability of this exact number.

I need to get a hold of Addco. I gave up a while ago because I would call and either no one would answer the phone or if someone did, the messages would never get through or they wouldn't return a call. The bushings that come with the bar absolutely suck. They are noisy and I just pulled mine again 2 weeks ago to grease them. The bar is starting to rust now, so the powder coating has not held up for 3.5 years of use.

Is that John at Addco a sales rep or customer service rep?

The bar is fine but the Addco bushings just stunk.
I posted the Moog bushing number in this thread. They work and keep working.

John and Ernie are my contacts there. Not going to sugar coat it, I have phone issues with them just the same. Some days I just get lucky and one of them answers. Dial the 800 and use option 2. They are both usually very good on email.
