Newbie looking for advice

Hey, I have a 1997 E350 extended Van with a 7.3 L in it and was looking for something to help the springs in back so I can actually pull a trailer with this thing. Anybody know of a good aftermarket set of helper...or even new springs?

Also anybody know how to change the fuel filter on a van like this?

E-350 is a 1 ton van and from what I can remember it should be ok as is. But I could be wrong.

Check your springs and make sure they aren't broke or bent. Also maybe some airbags in the back will help

Airide makes pretty good air bag systems.

+1 on the airbag system. There are several manufacturers out there and they will cost less than a new set of springs.
