Shockies and Fuel

Hello All from Australia,

Seeking info about how many shocks are on the rear of the Superduty F250's in the US. The version exported to Australia has four on the rear and I was wondering if yours are the same. Reason I ask is that I am looking at importing some Bilsteins from the US (way cheaper than here) anybody had experience with these?

Also I am thinking of fitting a dual CAV fuel filter in the line from the tank and before the fuel pump and was wondering if this will place too much strain on the fuel pump an should I upgrade it?
We can get bad batches of diesel in places here and an extra precaution is not a bad idea plus the replacement cartridges for the CAV are way cheaper than the main filter too.

Cheers from
Downunder

Come on now.... Spell it like ya say it....

DownundA.

I dont know about the fuel filter, but my '250 had only two rear shocks from the factory. Although four from the factory would be really cool!

Bilstiens are great shocks. You will be very pleased with their performance. I have dual 5150's on the front and singles on the rear. Super sweet ride.

Cheers from uhhh... Up..Over?!

Thanks for the reply Log Dog,

Yeh I should spell it like we say it but have trouble as I was always taught to spell things properly, that's my excuse anyway.

Why we have 4 shocks on the rear of our F250's and you guys only have 2 is a bit of a mysterybut eh that's the way it is.

Your comments on the shocks make them promising thought he part numbers I have diffe from what you are describing, is yours raised?

If you try and raise anything here more than 2 inches the transport department will give you a hard time. From what I have seen on this forum and when I was in Canada recently there is not much you cannot do.

Anyone out there able to provide feedback in relation to possible strain on the fuel pump if a filter is fitted between it and the tank?
