    Insurance destroyed 02 e450 4x4 ambulance $20k

    How long did you fight with the insurance company? I can't imagine the insurance rolling over and paying on a claim like this. Did you file suit? Did AJ admit his mistakes? Is it now a salvaged title? Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk

    How good can a full-size solid axle suspension be?

    @Metcalf My truck weight about 8900 lbs with the front being 4800 lbs. Is that gonna be too much for these?

    How good can a full-size solid axle suspension be?

    The 05+ superduty ones look very similar to those. How tall are those? They look to be 3-4 inches, which means with 5 inches of travel you really only get the first inch or two that are pure shock. Is that an issue?

    How good can a full-size solid axle suspension be?

    @Metcalf Do you have any particular bump stops that you would recommend? I could try and get an OEM Ford one to work. I have heard that they compress a lot, hard to believe as they seem to be very hard material.

    How good can a full-size solid axle suspension be?

    I think it makes sense to move the mount(s) so that I have more compression. I could go to 5" of compression, which would leave me 4 1/8" of droop. Any recommendations for bump stops to use? My main confusion with bump stops and setting them correctly is that apparently some compress more...

    How good can a full-size solid axle suspension be?

    I asked someone with the Carli 4.5 pin top measure the exposed shaft on their truck. It was 4.95 inches. I guess you can get a longer shock when you do the stem at the top vs the eye, otherwise, I am not sure how they can fit in an 11" travel shock (or does King make a more compact shock...

    Larger than a Dana 60?

    Pirate is mostly dead. Many users went to Irate. Dana 60 from a later model F550. Later models used 35 spline inner and outers. Or step up to Rockwells. I would stay away from older stuff. Parts are harder to find and brakes and steering components not as good as the newer stuff imho.

    How good can a full-size solid axle suspension be?

    I think I am locked in for the moment to this shock. I would probably take too much of a hit if I try and sell them. What is the recommended method to set the bumpstop for max up travel?

    How good can a full-size solid axle suspension be?

    @DzlToy I have never ridden in a Carli pin top system, but I have heard nothing but good things about it. I am using the same coil as the pin top and then the shocks were tuned by Accutune, so I am hoping in the end I get a similar ride / performance to the pin top.

    How good can a full-size solid axle suspension be?

    The Carli 4.5 pin top claims an 11" travel. The Carli Dominator system claims 10.5 travel. (uses fabricated coil buckets) The Carli Unchained system claims 10.5 travel. (uses fabricated coil buckets) The shock I have is called a 10" travel shock by Fox. I am not sure if that means you create a...

    How good can a full-size solid axle suspension be?

    For reference here is a photo of the PMF coil bucket. I even hacked up the shock mount portion to get the top mount about an inch higher. It appears to be still "far away" from where the Carli shock mount is.

    How good can a full-size solid axle suspension be?

    I am gonna revive this thread from the dead. Maybe it will come back to life. I recently converted a 99 F350 to coils up front using an 08 axle. I used PMF buckets (wouldn't use those again - another conversation). I installed Carli 4.5 coils. The shock I have for it is a a Fox...

    Anyone ever DIY a portable 12V compressor with tank?

    I am not sure if you are looking to replicate the performance of an ARB dual or not. If so, there aren't many (probably none) cheap "hi flow" compressors that come close to the performance of the ARB dual. Where do you see used ARB duals for $350? "Tank and case worth $600 plus" - your...

    2000 Ford Excursion axle swap question

    I believe it's 05 and later. In 05 Ford switched to coil springs in front instead of leaf springs. If you use an 05 or later axle you must switch to coil springs suspension. This entails numerous brackets, coils, springs, trac bar, radius arms and other stuff. It's a major project. Sent from...

    2000 Ford Excursion axle swap question

    My 99.5 only has rear abs, so i didn't spend too much time on this. You can use any unit bearing you want from 05-16. They are all physically the same, but there are some different plugs. You can move plugs/sensors from one year to another, but i don't know if the tone wheel is the same inside...

    @01tundra do you keep it "permanently" mounted under your trailer? Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk

    Thermometer to see outside temps

    I got the sensor push. Looks like a good product. Seems better than the other ones I've used in the past. Granted it's only been a few days. It's definitely not waterproof as stated by @01tundra but i can see water resistance. The battery cover looks to ruin any waterproof. I bought the mid...

    Thermometer to see outside temps

    How long have you been using it for? I checked 3 camels, it looks like it had only gone done in price to $60 once for a short period last year. Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
