Thanks uhauler! Ive been through your thread and its been a great help. My concern is the 7.3 engine plus ambulance package would reduce the amount of lift i'll see. Would you still be able to trim a touch further on your van, or was that about all you could cut away safely? I imagine i'll need to trim juat a touch more than you have. Cheers!

From what I remember, there was plenty of clearance, even when compressed. You could probably do a little more.

I have a 2000 E250 5.4 Quigley. Just installed some 880s Moogs with new bill steins up front. They seem really stiff. I think they are too much for my 8000# van. Rally driving over washboard and speed bumps was super harsh.

They are sitting at 15" right now, and gave me a 1.75" lift over the OG stock e250 coils that were in there. They did have 240,000 miles on them though.

Any idea how much these may settle and in what time frame? Also, what may be a softer coil to use that may make this van a little more comfortable to drive. Unless I re-gear to 4.56 to fit 35's, this front end looks way to big for the 285/75/16's in there now.

The Moog 880's seem popular, but are not available on rock auto. Is the cc81368 a modern replacement for this?

With only a 5.4, 880s will be too heavy. I’m very happy with them and a heavier 7.3 psd. I believe 860 may be better suited for you.
I finally just had Bilstein's ( Rv comfort not HD) put on my pleasure way traverse on my e350'd suspension e250 , still have the 880s on. Can confirm they do soften a bit after 3 years but still feel "firm" . I keep my van fully prepped for earthquake preparedness so carry a bit more weight. I like the lift I got from the 880's and can fit my studded hakkapelitta 265's on IF I need them. I would not mind it softer a bit but ultimately I don't want to lose my lift because of low hanging propane and grew water "fruit" lol.
During the install it ended being a lot more expensive, my 2002 ball joints were shot and could not do alignment due to slop + components like wheel bearing etc a, all hd too much play. With a complete front end all new HD upper and lower ball joints , bearings , shocks alignment and two new Rotiva At plus 10plys tires was 3300$ cad ouch. However my steering has no slop and tracks so much better and really like the new shocks so much less bob and roll.Van feels new.

So the CC860 has been suggested for the vans with the 5.4 L V8. Can anyone explain what the difference is between that, and the CC860S?
