    Ok, I know everyone is going to say bilstiens. But as much as I'd like to I cannot spend that kind of money now, or anytime soon. If I try to save it, it will get spend on home repairs or other vehicle repairs or a new appliance or something. I'm just simply not that well off. It's everything I can do to save up what I do get to spend on my car. If the rides not smooth as glass I"m ok with that. I just want to get rid of the 4x4 look really bad, and I like the way the B springs look in pics I've seen.

    I have read some good things about these shocks and struts. I know they are not intended for much of a drop, but will the be ok for the Ford B springs? I mean they have to be better than the 20 year old factory ones right?

    Thanks!
