I spoke with MOOG - and their "fitment" for recommended springs for a 2002 E350 van are - CC81370 Variable and CC 81368 HD Variable springs.
Can someone explain how they came up with the 880's vs the 81368's or 81870's as correct fitment - going against MOOG's recommended springs ? Just asking - respectfully --
So I've been over this with a few people and this is my own personal opinion. Moog makes "replacement parts" that are designed to "replace OEM parts."
Moog 880/880s are not "replacement parts" because they raise the vans. Do they fit, yes but they are not direct fit replacement OEM parts.
Because of this I don't think MOOG will ever recommend those springs for our applications. Additionally you'll never see them on the moog website for your van either.
