Great comments and very interesting

Not sure if any of you have had an issue with sway bar brackets on the 7.3 Liter chassis. There is another post related but I had that issue too. Rear sway bar bracket broken with bolt missing and bushing missing. (2021 34PA). I replaced both rear sway bar brackets bolts and bushings. Torqued to 165 ft/lb with locktite on threads. No problem with those coming loose after about 6k miles so far. I did have koni shocks and Safety plus installed and am really happy with them. The shocks were especially worth the money I think the safety plus helps but really didn't have serious issues prior with wind gusts or truckers breeze causing me grief. I have thought seriously about added LS but am concerned with the 550 added lbs taking from my cargo capacity. I bet they are really nice though.

Did that - installed the Sumo Springs today. Haven't driven it yet - tomorrow. Sumo Springs seem to be robust but far too expensive - seems about $500 for a set would be plenty. When i took those Ford bump stop "cups" off, I couldn't see how the rubber part was supposed to be attached... C'mon Ford - get it together. Seems Ford should reimburse me for at least the cost of their crappy missing stops that they want about $66 each for, just to fall off again.

Yep, and watch out for those bouncing down the road. Could cause some damage! There has been a few times when my wife and I heard a thump driving down the road... looked at each other and said "what was that?"; coulda been a bump stop I suppose.

The Sumo Springs definitely improved the response to those huge dips that come up occasionally. Now if we could get rid of the constant "jiggle" caused by the smaller road imperfections, that would be nice; I wonder if Koni shocks would be helpful for that.
