I replaced front and rear shocks ( Bilsteins ) due to leaking at 39k in 4/23. Replaced frt. and rear swaybars with Hellwig at the same time. Present time 6/24 with 44k I am completely satisfied with there performance. 2019 Expy XLT 202a package. I had never expienced leaking shocks in all my vehicles I have owned. All Fords and I owned many.

I wonder if anyone has tried Rancho 9000XL's on these ? Thats what I put on my 2002 F250 diesel, made a HUGE difference over whatever generic shocks the previous owner had put on that 250000 mile truck. I ended up with the fronts on '5' and the rears on '7' which was pretty stiff but worked great when towing a moderately light trailer. The '02 F250 had leaf springs in back with a stock overload leaf, so its suspension was nothing like the Expy... I didn't mess with the swaybars as it really didn't sway much.
