Newb with an 93 E-350 Quigely

Hello all!
First post, tryin to recover from the math question tryin to join up here . Have recently gotten a 93 E-350 with Quigely 4x4 conversion. Have tried contacting them but no help. First question is can someone tell me what coil springs they used in the front end with the solid axle. Probably have more as time goes by,
Thanks Trey

Quigley retains the stock springs.

Give them your VIN and they can tell you everything about your van build.

Re: Newb with an 93 E-350 Quigely

Reason for wanting to change them out is I believe the years under the 460cid have got up with them. Van rides well enough but hit your average Houston area pot hole or even a steep little dip and front end movement is short and hits hard. Looking under van noted that the suspension bumpers were only about 2 inches from contact pad so figure thats it. Has Belsteins which I was told were good. Thinks its just a mechanical thing. Any input appreciated

2" of up travel is not uncommon for a Quigley van.

You could try and make a spacer to go under the springs or mounts. You could have custom springs made. You could replace the solid rubber bumpstops with softer ones from a late F-350.

If you lift the front of the van, you may need custom springs to raise the back a similar amount.

Helps keep the riff-raff out... doesn't always work though.

Re: Newb with an 93 E-350 Quigely

A slightly heavier spring will give you a little more ride height, and also have a stiffer rate so you'll bottom out more often. I'm running 4600# springs. QuadVan uses newer F-series bump stops because they are much softer. The E-series bump-stops are really stiff because they are intendend for a 1-2 motion ratio, while converting to solid axle makes it 1-1

Re: Newb with an 93 E-350 Quigely

Welcome aboard,
I have never had the same bumpstop issues as you and others have posted, pre/post Deaver/bilstein, so not sure exactly what the remedy would be. But, do a search on here for Deaver springs, I had them make me a set of leafs for the rear, gets rid of that lift block and makes a proper weighted spring, they also make front coils. huge improvement over stock, it may also be that your bilsteins need replacing, stick with them, they are the best as they are valved properly for our heavy rigs. I believe we would have the same setup. In the 5000 series, you would use a Ford f-150 rear shock for our front, and a yellow bodied motorhome shock for our rear. I might be able to dig up the part numbers if you need them. Also, I have the upgraded HD 4600# coil up front, it may be that it was an option from Ford/quigley, or comes standard in the diesels, but they are a ford stock part, should be a red tag on the coil itself ID'ing it.
Good luck...
