X2. Rides much better than leaf springs. The "problem" with the coils was an attempt to trash a Ram truck trying to make the Ford look better.

The coils allow for a progessive coil rate. Plush at first, firmer as you add weight.

Rail cars and locomotives have coil springs. SD70MAC, Sd75M, Sd60, GE dash 9 I ran were about 400,000- 425,000lbs. Coils managed that weight.

I am starting to see that now. Another brand loyalist with incorrect information with nothing better to occupy themselves.

To me it's interesting because newer F250 have a common sag problem because Ford lengthened the leaf and use 1 less leaf now to make a smoother ride.

Airbags and/or use of a 4" rear block from a 350 is common.
