Suspension Kit for Truck?

I have 2002 Ford Explorer Sport Trac and have had just about enough of the teeth rattling jolts on this thing. However, knowing nothing about suspension I ve no idea where to start.

What I do know from some surface research is that I am more in the market for coils and dampeners than a full lift kit. In fact, that s exactly what I need. Not a lift lift whatsoever just the coils and dampeners.

So the question is, do I have to find a set made specifically for my truck? Or can I just buy universal kit for medium truck dimensions and have it done at a shop? Help please :-(

    Yes. Just about any auto parts store can get you the proper parts. Also it should be mentioned that your sport trac has leaf springs in the rear. Coil springs in the front.

    Rock Auto has the OEM shocks for around $35-$40 per corner, Front coil springs with mount cost around $55-$60 per side, and new leaf springs are $275 (not sure if that's for a pair or a single leaf spring, but it's unlikely they require replacement). These prices do not include the cost of labor obviously.
