Just adding up the cost of a dual stabilizer setup, why not consider a single Fox ATS? You can buy the adjustable version, and it's arguably simpler (since there's only one). Granted my van is a Quigley and I have only 33s, but there seems to be plenty of adjustment left on mine. I thought the main downside of the ATS would be cost, but it's cheaper than the dual setups listed above by ~50%.

Those are great units. Good idea. The Carli single is the bee knees too apparently -- but you'll need someone with a NO2 tank to dial it in.

Cool, I wasn't aware of the Carli option. To install my ATS I had to machine the tie rod clamp to fit my 2010 axle because the largest clamp Fox makes is 1-5/8". I was also a bit concerned because it sits pretty low (inline with the tie rod) instead of up and out of the way, but it hasn't proven to be an issue.

Rear Lift Questions

I have 2013 E350 5.4L 4R75 RB Semi Float with light weight interior build out with pop top.

In the future, I plan to get custom leaf springs but for now I just want to get rolling…

I saw one with similar config comment that 2.5” block almost leveled his van (he had EB). Can others please chime in what worked for them?

Do I need longer shocks? If yes, any part numbers would be appreciated.

Do I need longer brake lines? If yes, any part numbers would be appreciated.

Thank You!

If you have stock rear springs and not lifted or 4x4 conversion you could consider adding a leaf in rear. it will add about 1.5" - 2" probably. I'd guess it would cost you about $200-$300 in parts if you did it yourself. I would guess stock shocks/brake lines would be ok. I would not do blocks if it were me. Most in this group have done 5-6" lifts so setups would vary.

The rear suspension is stock. The front is MG kit. Its my understanding that suspension
needs to be level with wheels/tires inflated to measure for drive shafts. Asking the hive,
what did they do for the rear if converting from stock? (shocks, brake lines )

In rear, I used the Sky Offroad Design's 4.5" rear shackle flip & 1" extended Shackles (78-97 Truck/Bronco). Several guys have used this w/ good results. Also used 6 deg pinion shims from WFO to help w/ pinion angle. With cc880s springs in front, this brought me mostly level. Adding a leaf will get you a couple more inches.

Thank you HintonbrosRV.
I will order both those products tomorrow.
What rear shocks do you use?
Brake lines, rear?
