Now that we've decided to keep our 2WD E-250 SMB, I'm thinking about a mild lift. We camp a lot on public lands and drive a lot of dicey roads (well, not too dicey since it's just 2WD). But having some more clearance would be helpful, as would larger wheels and limited slip differential, which are also on the agenda. Right now our van has original factory suspension other than shocks which have been replaced a few times over 193k miles.
My wife has concerns, which I share, that the lift may adversely affect the ride. Right now our van tracks straight and rides smooth, not quite like a Buick but pretty darn comfortable. We don't want to give that up, as the majority of our driving is highway. I don't have any experience with a lift, so I'm hoping forum members can chime in on the question of whether a lift will degrade the ride, make a good ride better, or be neutral.
I'm also interested in recommendations for a mild lift kit, say 2-3 inches, nothing too high. Thanks in advance!
