Thread: Different front end parts for limos?

  1. #1

    Default Different front end parts for limos?

    It seems we replace the whole front end on most of our larger stretches like the hummer limos every single year. We replace them ourselves.

    Have any of you guys did something different to make the front end last longer in some of your larger stretches like stabilizing shocks? or something different?

    Moog makes a line of heavy duty parts for most vehicles, always opt for those. And on some front stabalizers we have gone to some off road aftermarket parts like dual shock stabalizers. We are lucky to have high end suspention shops near us that service the 4x4 community. Extra premium pays for some longer life but we also like the better driveablity some mods offer. But not lifetime parts by any means. Sorry do not have specifics for you.

    We dumped the Ford springs on the front of our 120s for sets made especially for limos, no more squatting front ends or toed out front tires.

    They were only $20 more than the standard Ford parts, but did have to be shipped from someplace out in the midwest.

    feel free to give such a company some advertising! We are desperately looking for better replacement parts for our 300 stretch...the front end on that only lasted 30,000 miles!

    Rich, I'll get the info from my mechanic and post it here as soon as I have it.

    To be honest, I have forgotten the name of the company.
