What springs? You have a part# or where you picked them up.

I know this has been asked before but never answered.....at least that I can find......what is the part number or length and weight of the spring you used?

Ford Econoline lift

Another old thread, but for all of you looking to add a cheap lift to your van there are several options:
Put a larger coil to give you 1.5-2" lift depending on coil. You will have to run a 2.5-3 degree cam to get your alignment correct. The negative part about this is that you will take + caster out of the radius arm which may cause you van to wander more.
Lifting it 1.5 " you can usually get away without changing shocks.

If you would like to do something like this we offer a kit with modified radius arms to increase caster with the lift coils.

Great Company to Work With!

I just got off the phone with Jeremy at Weldtec Designs. He was super helpful in getting my suspension upgrades under way! Can't wait to feel real suspension travel instead of the bump stops! Great customer support is becoming rare these days! When the owner will spend 20-30 minutes answering questions and offering the best suggestions, it should be applauded!

My van is at Jeremy's shop right now and he's been great to work with. I would highly recommend him to anyone thinking of pretty much ANY suspension modifications.
