    How do you install new shocks on Gen 3 X?

    I have about 60K on my X and was looking to install some new shocks. I have the Ground Force lowering kit already installed and was looking to put in some Monroe Reflex's. Anyway...I have done shocks on an E30 BMW and E36 M3 - nothing on a truck though. Does anyone have a write-up, photo...

    3rd Gen Explorer mods

    So what is the name of the Monroe's that you got, and where did you get them? I looked at Monroe's website but it isn't very helpful and I can't seem to find anyone that sells them online.

    Which shocks/struts should I get?

    I just got my X back from being lowered today with Ground Force (FMS) springs. Got them from Summit with free shipping - gotta love Summit. Anyway I was thinking about getting some new shocks/struts for my truck. Does anyone make performance shocks/struts for lowered 4Wd X's and where could I...

    3rd Gen Explorer mods

    I just got my FMS (AKA Ground Force) springs in and am having them installed on Tuesday. I noticed that you have Eibach springs and Monroe shocks. Do you think the shocks really help?

    Just bought some Springs for the X

    Just placed my order for some Ford Racing lowering springs for the X. I tried to buy some from Explorer Express but after I placed the order they emailed me and said the price went up $50 (which is a 25% price increase!!) and that they quoted me the wrong shipping over the internet and that...

    Spring install in MA?

    When the snow finally stops for the year I am going to lower my '02 XLT with the spring kit from Explorer Express. Does anyone know a good place to get this installed in the Boston area?

    Does anyone have a blower on their 4.6L Gen III?

    For a while now I have been looking for a blower for my 4.6L X but no one seemed to have a kit. Now I found one using an Eaton M90 that looks promising. Does anyone have this kit?

    Small problem on a 3rd Gen Bulb install

    I think the only way to do it is to take out the pins. When I do it I try to wiggle them side to side a bit to loosen them up. Just make sure you pull up and not out.

    Angel eye conversion?

    I haven't seen those posts in a while but I know that some people were wondering about E39 style(5 series) angel eye conversions. I think this might be possible on X's if you buy ZKW's or DEPO's with DDE(daylight demon eyes). There are kits available that you could probably cut up and make fit...

    Anyone make a supercharger for Gen 3?

    I was wondering if anyone makes a blower for a 4.6L? Kenne Bell used to advertise them but I guess never actually produced them. I emailed KB and they said that they don't and never did sell it because the demand was too low. I also know that Vortech makes blowers for the 4.6L trucks but...

    Got 18's Need Tires....

    Does EE sell the scoop? I always hear you talk about products on here but can never find them on your website. Edit: Alas I did find it during a forum search. You guys really need to update your website or make a new catalog or something.

    Got 18's Need Tires....

    Hey John, is that the 35th anniversary Mustang scoop? Looks too short to be the 01+ GT hood. Was that hard to put on? What did it take?

    Where to get KMC Stealths? (18")

    Thank you m435tro. Yeah, those are some nice looking wheels. Thanks for the site Hartman. I did a google search but had never heard of any of the companies. Is that company good? Have people on the board done biz with them?

    Where to get KMC Stealths? (18")

    I still can't seem to find the right rims for my truck. I really want the S Style 18" rims but think they are too wide. People say they fit, but then again I can't seem to find any pics of people with them on Gen III X's. So I was looking into the Stealths. Anyone know a reputable site that...

    Borla on Gen III?

    I was wondering if any of your guys had a Borla cat-back on your V8 Gen III's? I know they are real expensive but I generally love them. Have one on my V8 99 Mustang GT and on my 2000 Miata. Love the deep sound and the fact that they aren't too loud. I know that Gibson and Magnaflow also...

    clicking sound

    They have that problem in the Gen 3's because of the tie rods/ball joints. That is most likely the only problem.

    frequence of window tinting tickets

    I have 20% on mine which is illegal in Ma and have never been pulled over. I like 20% because it matches the factory tint in the back. Gives it a nice clean look.

    Are the 02+ mirrors the same as the 01- mirrors?

    I have seen the carbon fiber side mirror covers from a couple of places. They all say that they fit the 94-01 Explorers. Are the mirrors on my 02 4 door that much different? They look about the same. Can anyone help?
