I know this is a MN-12 site but I figure a few of yall know alot about other vehicles. Has anyone had any experiance with a 02-05 Explorer, Mountaineer? I have a 02 Mounty and am trying to figure out how to get a better ride out of this thing. I am gonna try tires first and replace the BF Goody 17's with a Michelin 17. Is there anything else, shocks, springs ect I could do to help the ride. Why do these have such a firm ride when the big selling point was the new independant rear suspension. I dont underrstand how the Aviator which is so close kin rides so much better. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
