Saw this mentioned in another thread but thought it best to start afresh...
I have a UK spec '98 4.0 SOHC 4X4 which is fitted with a self levelling
suspension system. The drivers handbook describes it as an 'Air Ride'
Anyway, the system does not function at all and my Ford UK dealer has
diagnosed failed rubber seals on the rear shocks.
I would be very interested to know if the same system is fitted to any US
spec Ex's as I am finding it very difficult to find replacement shocks here
in the UK and I think Ford UK's price of 350 GBP (approx $650 USD) per pair
PLUS labor is a bit extortionate. Maybe I could source a pair in the US and
ship them to the UK for much less than that...
Any help with tech specs or price comparisons would be welcome.
