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.

http://www.jcwhitney.com/performance-shock-absorbers/ford-e-150/c15554d50730j1s21.jcwx ...has a great selection, of what they call "High performance" shocks ans struts...from $40 to $150 each and remember you get what you pay for....cheap=inferior and expensive can mean anything ..they even have a customer service with people that actually speak English @1.866.529.5530

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
