Wanted: E350 lift kit

Hey everyone, I'm looking for a used 4-6" 2wd lift for my 98 E350. The van has over 200,000 miles so it's hard to justify spending $2500-3500 on a new Weldtec/Camburg/Action Van lift. I thought with a lot of people converting to 4x4 there may be a few nice used kits out there for a good price. I'm located in SoCal but can always make a weekend road trip if need be, please let me know if anyone has one or has a lead to one!

I don't have the whole thing.....but I can hook you up with *part* of an "Action Van" lift kit --- I don't have the front suspension components, but I do have the rear lift blocks/U-bolts and both the front & rear long-travel Bilstein shocks that came with the kit.

I'm in SoCal too --- will make ya a great deal on all of this stuff. Heck....ya know what....I'll just give it to ya.

You'll still need to figure out the front coils, long-travel radius arms and brackets. (Which is admittedly the main "meat and potatoes" of the lift kit.)

Send me a PM if you want these parts to get your endeavor kicked off.

Mike T that would be great!

If I can find some bent beams I can source the coils and build a set of radius arms pretty easily.

PM incoming

Is that the complete kit? Looks like it's just the front stuff so you'll still need the rear blocks and u bolts so make sure you take up MountainBikeRoamer's offer for the rear parts.
