1998 Ford Windstar Question: suspension restored



simplycurious, 3.8L V6, Lakeland, FL, February 20, 2010, 03:07

my van was converted to handicap equip. none of it currently works, and the ride is like driving a tractor trailer with springs in every seat. is it costly and/or possible to have the original suspension restored?

    I don't know if your suspension had some sort of conversion to an air bag or pneumatic suspension but at any rate if the suspension was "up graded" am sure the "new" suspension uses the original suspension pick up points and could be easily converted back to stock arrangement with upgraded springs and shocks. No way to estimate the cost without seeing if things were modified.

    Are you in the north lakeland area? I'm taking it tomorrow but I would love a second opinion if possible.
