Can't do it on vans with RSC. It's all tied into the computer.

Another pic of the bags. I really like this kit. It fits nice around the frame. It gets a bolt up through the bottom in the existing jounce bumper bolt hole, and then a bolt on the outside of the frame. I just had to drill one hole for each bracket. The frame doesn't appear to be made of hardened steel, like some frames are. It was pretty easy to drill out the holes. Just watch for the AC and brake lines on the drivers side. It really helps to have a 2nd person to help with this job.

Vehicle 2010 Ford Econoline
Submodel E-350, 2WD

I like the tires pretty good so far. They are more aggressive looking than I thought they'd be. They are just a bit louder than my previous wimpy skinny OEM 225 wide tires. The ride feels pretty good. BFG Rugged Terrain 275/65/18 Load Range E.

This is the closest that the tires get to the fender.

Those wheels look great! The van is really coming along. Do you know what the offset on the wheels is?

I think my van handles pretty nice. With the RSC I can take a turn pretty fast and the van stays flat. It has a lot less body roll than I thought it would.

So they still use TTB? From that one pic of yours it looks like it. I thought they'd have an SLA by now.

Yes, you mentioned that in post #23. They still use a TTB which connects to the XYZ PDQ which applies pressure to the BIG OL TITAYS, which then makes the muffler bearings engage the clutch oil and makes the van run smooth.

If you don't mind...
What was the total cost (minus wheels/tires) for the lift?

$69 for the front spacers. Had to buy longer bolts for the kit to work, $20.
$225 for the rear air bag kit. Front end alignment $60.
