I hope everyone had a great Father's Day! We had beautiful weather where I live.
I took the time to get after a project I've been meaning to do for awhile - make the Escape better at towing.
Obviously these vehicles aren't the best on the market for that, but if its what you have, it's what you have.
My Escape pulls a 6x12 trailer I use for appliances (I own rentals) and 4 wheelers; its towed a small R-Pod (within the limits of tow/tongue weight) and other things.
Even with H&R springs, there's still some sag at the rear even if the trailer doesn't approach the tongue weight limit. I found a kit by Airlift designed for the Escape, and installed it.
The jounce and jounce plate were a bit harder to get off than I thought, but in the end it was a simple install.
When I hook back up to a trailer, I'll let you know the difference. Anyway, if you have the idea of doing it or wondered about it, I'd be glad to help.
