    Default W124...what shocks or coilovers are you using with your air ride?

    Iím curious as to what everyone is using in conjunction with their front air bags? E36 coilovers? Bilstein B8? Koni?

    How low can you go with the B8 before damaging them?

    I read somewhere about using Ford Ranger front shocks on the rear......what year?

    Use an OE shock or OE replacement along with R128 V8 shock mounts. The R129 V8 mounts sit higher into the bay so you'll get lower and still have full shock travel.


    EDIT:

    1999 Ford Ranger 2wd front shocks fit the rear but you have to use the W124 bushing collar. HOWEVER, the Ranger shocks are going to limit the hell out of your lift height. I'd a shitty, double edged sword.
