Shocks won't lift the back of your van. Springs will. Putting that much stress on the chock mounts will lead to damage. If the back end of your van sags, you need to either add air springs or replace the metal springs.


Windows- they're what make a van worth owning!

I agree .... you need to replace your leaf springs or do a add a leaf..... shocks wont do what you want with out damaging the shock mounts.

When you get all that done I like Bilsteins .. cost more but worth it !
