American made version of the Billstein 5100's

I was going to replace my shocks with 5100's but found out they are made in Germany. My mindset in EVERYTHING I buy is first try to see if an American made product exists first. Is there any shocks that are similar that are made in the USA?

He's right Fox is pricey, but man, they are smooth!!! German shocks are better than Chinese any day.

I thought Bilstien had a plant in Ohio. Parts are made in Germany but assembled in USA.
