Subject: FTE Perf - Re: Springs

actually its possible but the ride would not be much better with such a
heavy body.
I considered using airbags and coilsprings on my Ranger
($499 kit for air bags and then the coil konis were a few hundred)
but it wouldnt really ride that much better for the probally $2000
invested in & getting them installed.....

I did invest in huge sway bars and stiffer springs in the front to
counter the
V8 weight i put on it..

just my 2 cents
Erik
ps.. im taking the ranger on a 4000 mile test drive to see how
everything
works this week :) so i will be back in a week

You might try the Edelbrock shocks alone, before you add the sway
bar. They are designed to reduce body roll already, so the sway bar
might prove to be redundant. I've been trying to get an answer from the
source (edelbrock edelbrock.com) but no reply yet. I am following this
thread with interest because my '94 F150 needs some suspension upgrades,
so please post the result of your modifications. Thanks!
