Sportsmobile Fox Shox Rocks

I recently installed the Fox Shox steering stabilizer and shocks from the Sportsmobile store. After driving some highway miles, local miles and a trip down the winding road from the ski area in a light snowstorm, I'd recommend them to anyone with a Sportsmobile 4x4. The steering is tight, the shocks smooth and the cost isn't impossible.

I have a set that I need to install on my 03' E350 SMB. It has the Agile Off-road conversion. Was the install difficult?

I have no mechanical skills or tools so I went to my mechanic. The install was easy enough but the old rear shocks didn't come off easily and he ended up having to fab a new connection for the driver's rear.

Fully agree with Don. I picked up the Fox shocks and steering stabilizer from the SMB store and the ride and handling was much improved. Money well spent!
