Another New Shocks Question

I need some new shocks for a better ride and would like some information to help me decide which ones to get. My van is the 2008 Ford E-350 Super Duty RB 6.0 Diesel. I just had it weighed and it came in at 8220 lbs. with me (200). Front was 4080 and rear at 4140. I was three or four gallons shy of a full tank of gas with no water in the water tank. I do not off-road. I'm thinking about getting the Bilsteins, but don't know if I should get the one for the Standard Van or the RV version. I'm thinking if I get the standard version then the ride might be too soft and the RV type might be too stiff. I just want a good safe drive at highway speed whether empty or loaded. All comments appreciated.

James

I still have not heard back from an Agile rep and am hoping they will call me back come Monday.

I visited Amazon.com and the reviews that were posted provided me with the information that I was seeking, so I deleted the details of this post.

unfortunately they are having growing pains. it took me a month to hear back from them last time. keep trying by calling and email....you wont regret it. those guys really do have the best deal going for the vans. they are the only ones doing custom valving for this platform.

Jeremy at WeldTec, in El Cajon CA, is very knowledgeable about suspension on the E-Series vans. He answers the phone. Give him a call.

I'm sure John, or someone else, will get back to you, but they generally don't work weekends.

I'm pretty sure the shocks that Weldtec sells are Agile tuned Fox shocks.

I'd definitely call Weldtec or Michael at Expovans/MgMetalworks. Lots of active guys on this forum making a living working on vans these days that WILL get right back to you. Spread the love around. John at Agile is a good friend of mine but if he's busy there are other options.
