3rd gen suspension build (WTD)

The Ford Generation 3 vans (1975-1991) are long overdue for some suspension upgrades. With not very many suspension upgrades available for these vans, we decided what the heck why not! Our goal is to put together a few options similar to what we have available for the GEN 4 series. We believe that we can make these Ford vans ride better lifted then they ever did stock.
TO start we are going big with our complete performance package, This kit includes our Baja Grocery Getter front suspension with custom long travel leaf springs to hold the weight of this COACH HOUSE build out.
We will add the Agile Off Road FOX shocks to all 4 corners as well as a steering stabilizer kit. The plan is to run a 285x70x17 tire with a 17x8.5 wheel.
If you have questions please ask.....

We are looking forward to this build and will post pics as the progress continues.

I sold my old van because no suspension upgrades were available. Darn.
