M1101, M1102 Trailer: NSN for Shock Absorber

Dear Half-Mast,
I’m trying to replace a shock absorber on an M1101 trailer. However, FED LOG shows the shock absorber, NSN 2510-01-190-3862, as AAC V. That means it’s a terminal item.
Can my unit still order them or is there a new NSN?

Dear Sergeant A.M.,
Even though it’s a terminal item, your unit can still order the shock absorber until stocks are exhausted. The shock absorber runs about $123 a pair and will fit M1101 and M1102 trailers.
Note that once stocks run out, the replacement NSN for the shock absorber is NSN 2510-01-554-1785.
