Hi,
My 1997 F150 shortbed 2wd [stock] is not the most pleasant vehicle to drive regarding the suspension, it's mostly driven with a light or no load.
pitch and roll i have read describes the ride.
will Tokico or Billsteins make a big difference?

i am not sure if it has sway bars, but would aftermarket swaybars be needed?

i like to have it more of a car like ride.

thank you for any reply in advance,
Garry

I installed the Gabriel Gas Shocks today. A huge difference in the ride. The Ford stock shocks are really cheaply made as I found out after removing them and they are very light and seem to weigh just 2 lbs, unlike the Gabriel which weighed at least 3 times as much were wider. ~$24.00 each at Autozone.
