Subject: FTE 97up - quick question

to anyone who has a 98 f-150 4x2 reg cab 4.2L v-6 5 spd tranny. my
truck is just this weekend 1 yr old. it has about 19000 mi on it. it runs
great, just like all ford trucks do. it seems to have gotten more power with
the more miles i put on it. i'm no expert engine mechanic (just know the
basics), but is that supposed to happen. it's geared 3.55:1, i think so
anyway. i haven't towed with it yet, soon will though.
it just seems to have alot more power than it used to.
if anyone has any comments or ideas to enlighten me, i would greatly
appreciate it.

I have a '99 F-250 Super Duty Super Cab 4X4 5.4L. I've noticed that
other similar trucks have a "shock absorber" type thing mounted
horizontally on the front suspension. My truck does not have this part,
although the metal mounting brackets for the part are present.

Should I have this item on my suspension?

Thanks in advance for any input!

Dan,
i don't know much about 4x4's, but i have been told that the shock absorber
is like a steering dampner. i guess it basically gives you more control over
your steering wheel when your off road.
but don't quote me on this, because i'm not sure. if you find out for sure,
let me know.(i'm always willing to learn more about 4x4 trucks)
