FTE Perf - Re: shocks

Subject: FTE Perf - Re: shocks

I called Edlebrock yesterday and spoke to a technician about my specific
application ('98 Explorer Limited with air leveling) and I found out that
they do not make any replacements for it! Actually, I have not found any
manufacturer that makes a replacement shock abosorber if you have the air
leveling feature. I got to thinking that I might just remove the air
leveling shocks and try the Edlebrock's alone. They come with a 30 day
money back guarantee so if I don't like 'em after installing, I only loose
$$ on the install charges. I'll keep the list updated as to wether or not
I go this new route or if it's even possible. This problem occurs on the
'98 Expeditions also with air leveling shocks.

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 ( 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!
