I just replaced my leaf springs with a fresh set of the same springs that came on my 2000 Quigley. Ford parts. Called Quigley to make sure. Everything went well. Under 500$ for everything. U bolts were cut poorly (by me) They are torqued equally

I'm pretty sure Agile will sell just the shocks. As mentioned above, you can get some Moog springs for like $100.

Make sure you know the spring rating of your van. Many Quigley vans had 4400-4600# coils, or code "U"or "V". I have the 4600# coils any I don't hit my bump stops.

They worked well but the Fox units I have now work much better.

Available in Oceanside, pick up only.

P.S. I do know that they are NOT the HD RV shocks

MAJOR CORRECTION! I still have the Bilstein boxes and just went to check them out. Lo and behold they contain my original Motorcraft shocks with 5k miles on them. I now seem to remember leaving the Bilsteins behind at Agile when I had the RIP kit installed. Please forgive my delayed recall of events. I am very sorry to get anyones hopes up.
The Motorcrafts are available for free but probably not very desirable.

I also have a set from my 1996, they have about 50 miles on them, Then I re did the entire suspensions via U joint. Hit me up if you need them.

I'd second the recommendations here - 2003 e250 w/ ~150k miles, 2wd. Weights about 7,300 lbs. Had original suspension all around - I replaced front coils w/ the Moog set, Bilstein B6s all around. Heavier duty leafs off of a good condition e350 superduty from the junkyard. If you have some time and a couple of jacks/jack stands, it's all work that can be done yourself. Makes a huge difference.
