    Hello all...Just got a 98 explorer EB for our second car (also have a 2000 Ranger 4.0).

    [​IMG]

    Great deal...84k miles, V8, AWD, loaded, etc. Picked it up at a Land Rover dealership for $7700.

    Anyway, I hope I won't be seen as double posting, but I'll ask here as well.

    The shocks seem worn (possibly never changed, but I hope not...it's at 84k miles), and I wondered what people here recommended I get. It has the load leveling at the button that switches from normal ride to Off-road (what does that do btw, since it's not in the owner's manual?).


    Here's to many great posts and finds on your forums...I come from nasioc.com so if you know any subie lovers send them that way...

    :)

    I saw that username and said, hey, somebody from NASIOC has that same username! I'm WR^2X over there... I tried helping you out with that Ranger problem you had a while ago... Don't remember the specifics. (That was you, right?) Sean (Trunkmonkey) is over here as well.

    cool deal B94sport...Sean's here too huh? Is it his or Buggirl's explorer?

    SubEd has one too.


    95offroadx, I doubt I'll do anything much to it, since it's the wife's baby carrier.

    Welcome to the site. The off road switch inflates air bags on the rear axle to give extra ground clearence. A lot of members here like the Edelbroc IAC's(I think thats the model), and the Monroe Sensatracs are also recomended by quite a few members as an affordable replacement. The Edelbroc's are probably popular becasue they make a shock for a lowered Explorer.
