What shock absorbers would you recommend on a 2002 conversion without raised roof when also using Sulastic rubber shackles

Asked by Aug 27, 2014 at 10:38 AM about the 2002 Ford E-Series Cargo E-150

Question type: Car Customization

Just installed new Michelins, and Monroe Reflex shocks and although the new shocks reduce roll significantly,the ride is too harsh.  The van is rarely loaded with anything. I still have a few weeks to return the Reflex shocks because of their satisfaction guarantee, so I can choose a different shock to go with the Sulatics

Are you sure it is the shocks? I had a Tahoe that I put Michelin's on and it started to ride rough, but as I went off road sometimes I left them on. They really improved the handling on the highway. I remember this cause the tires cost quite a bit of money at the time, but lasted over 80K miles. On an SUV that's fantastic. I put on another set but couldn't get the same tires as before then sold the rig before those wore out.

Good answer 'shoes. didn't think of that

And an empty truck.van will always have a rough ride empty, loaded will be much better. You might consider adjustable ones, air, easy to change And in the front it has that Ford Twin I-Beam independent suspension
