    Hi. I have the 4.8is with the two axle air suspension. It was bought originally with the ‘sports suspension’ package. I know a sports suspension is firm but is there any easy way to make the ride smoother other than changing to springs? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hi all I know it is the most mundane of things, but I much prefer the look of the engine cover (rocker gasket cover? Not sure of the proper name) on the 4.8l V8 over the one on the 4.4l V8. Does anyone know if it is a straight swap? I have seen pictures and the bolts look to be in the right...
