      Al, I can't remember, I know you have switched out your suspension components before, but I can't remember what you have settled on.

      Is you explorer riding at stock heigh or did you lower your explorer some?

      I am currently using Rancho 9000X shocks and an EE rear sway bar.

      Al wondering what type of spark plugs you used. I have magnacore wires but for some reason my buddy put in bosch plugs in. I think they are killing my gas mileage and want them out! Whats your reccomendation?

      I use Motorcraft plugs.

      I wouldn't hit a wild dog in the arse with Bosch plugs.

      After owning a 1999 explorer with the same motor, I commend you on your achievement of getting such great mileage from it. I find it over whelming what you have done to get it there, I am happy to see that others had great experiences from that truck with that motor, I had a lemon. Very impressed.
