Another E250 coil spring recomendation / question

Greetings-

Ive owned this 1997 E250 camper for a couple years. 75 to 80 psi in rear tires , 55 to 60 psi front

Previous owner had front coils and shocks all around as well as rear add a leaf / re-arching work done. I was given the receipts when I purchased van and have
discovered the suspension shop installed moog cc876 which seem to be the "lightest" duty springs for the ford vans! Van drives ok but does seem to wander and wallow
on the highway. Reading thru all the great builds on the site it looks like moog cc880s springs are the way to go.

Im wondering what else I should consider? Will probably upgrade shocks fairly soon. Existing are Monroe gas magnum Light Truck Shock with 15,000 miles.

Thanks in Advance! -Tom

Bilstein 5100's all around, with a new steering stabilizer will make a world of difference. I did the same for my 2001 E350 quigley and it was like a new truck after..

Appreciate the feedback.

I do remember reading the article on caster last year but had forgotten. Thanks for the reminder.

paperwork I have shows left caster at 3.55 and right at 3.90.

Will have it checked/reworked.
