I have a 94 F150 Lightning and the front coils are alot bigger then the focus rear springs.

popwarhomie Wow... Im retarded...
Ill be contacting Coil spring specialties to get some custom springs for the rear.

Kipp the springs are what carries the weight not the shocks. you can get some better shocks that will help keep it riding smoother with that weight, but ultimately you would need some heavier duty springs to keep the weight from slamming the car down on every bump.

need stiff rear shocks.

Im looking for some rear shocks. Im lowered 2" and also have a bunch of weight in the truck. Bottoming out all the time.

Will be adding even more weight to the trunk soon.. 2 HDC4 12s (70ish pounds each) plus 2 more 60 pound batteries. So around 350 pounds in the trunk. Plus if I ever have people in the back seat their ass is broke by the end of the night.
