OLD-rear end dragging

1987 For Falcon 190 (well used) but everything works, gen, heater, hot water, ac, frig, now led lights, good engine and trans and new tires and brakes. BUT, my rear end was dragging, new springs $$$$$$, so I went to truck air bags outside of my springs, $360.00, install $125.00. I put in an adjustable air pump ($210.00) for when i have MT or full water, black and gray. NOW my old fanny is high and riding level.

What chassis is that on?

E150 or E250 E350?

Back in my Motorola days they were buying the cheapest they could get so E150 it was...but they were seriously under - braked so brake jobs were often.

We got them to get the E250 and no more brake jobs.

Due to age do them anyway.

E250, Guess I better give more thanks for my find. Brakes were not THAT bad, just like to know I can trust them.

Took her to Maine from Florida last year, nice trip, no problems along the way.

This time of year it's not wonderful sunshine,,,, it's HOT, so now I camp in the woods.
