    U-bolt size????

    My right rear lower shock mount snapped today and I was doing some research on this and i was finding its a good idea to replace the U-bolts since they strech over time due to the amount of stress they go through. I was wondering what size stock U-bolts are on the Sports???

    stalling issue

    Today my 95 sport would all of a sudden misfire a couple times and stall out after driving 20 miles . It was around 70 today and it never did this till it got warm. It has around 202,000 miles and had the spark plugs replaced 50,000 miles ago. Any ideas on what would be causing this?

    thinkin of 2in suspension lift

    the reason for my lift is to slap on some bigger tires & rims, i know that the explorer can fit 31" at the stock hight but im a lil worried about the travel of the suspension when i go off road. I was thinking of doing a 2" lift now and a 2" body lift in the future.
