    I'm wanting to pull a leaf spring or two from the rear, but I still gotta' pull our little camper (with the van loaded down!) every once in a while. So . . . I am sitting here trying to figuring out my options.
    Anybody running air-shocks on the rear of their Econoline? What are your experiences, good, bad or otherwise?
    I've been looking at e-catalogs and can't find a listing, anybody got a part number.

    I have air shocks on everything I owned - best i can say is install them -yet they wont help if u delete springs- springs are for carrying the loads best. air shocks help with my excess loads i haul/carry. wouldnt do without them

    I just flipped the bottom spring to the top in the back and it dropped about 1-3/4 . i can still haul a nice load no prob. all of the springs are still there just moved around. Have a look at my van.

    If removing leaves is for ride height, you can have them re-arched.
    Find a GOOD spring shop to do this.
