The OP has 18" wheels and is looking at a huge upsize from stock which probably won't fit. I suggested that he call Goodyear and ask them about the application and/or buy a set and take advantage of...

Well heck yes you need new springs. I did not understand that the van sat with the rear end sagging that badly when relatively empty. Assume you have 500 lbs of tools in the back and not much else?...

Good info.

I don't know if Wagner makes Thermoquiet pads for Ford vans but I put a set of these pads on my wife's Civic and they are getting close to replacement after 106k(!) miles. Admittedly...

This is a real fun video and I enjoyed it.

My wife worked at Detroit Public TV for 40 years (retired 2014) and has 5 Emmys for videography and lighting... She goes back to the days of film, then...

Will you be carrying that much tile or something equally heavy often?

You can certainly get new springs, or helper springs, or air bags if you will be carrying heavy but overloading the van beyond...

And what is the payload of your van? Look on the door sticker. Cargo or Club Wagon? If it's a Club Wagon, you were probably right at max capacity or over depending on what else you carry. If a...

250 and 350 springs are wider than E150's prior to 2007. In 2007 the 150 became a 250.

GVW of the 150 was around 7000 lbs. Empty weight of a cargo van is ~4800 lbs. and Club Wagon is ~5400 lbs. ...

If the OP was gonna buy OEM wheels, I am guessing he would buy Ford wheels. The point of aftermarket was saving money.

I'll also await the info on torque wrenches because I have only a historic beam wrench and am sure it's not accurate. And I could do better with smaller torque wrenches.

I build and ride...

I don't think any of this is the case. Vans use an 8x6.5" bolt pattern which was used on Ford pickups before 1997 only. Current Ford 8-lug pickups use a 6.69" (170 mm) bolt circle. What stock...
