I meant to do this as a upgrade thread, but I forgot to take pictures, so now it is just an "after" thread I bought a 2000 Excursion 7.3, and I had heard the suspension left something to be desired. Boy, were they right. Even on a stock, unloaded, low mileage truck, you could move the wheel at highway speed and the rear end steered for you. Every bump hit the front bump stops, and big bumps produced a wonderful waterbed feel. It was borderline unsafe. I dont have any before pictures, but they sit 2-3 inches lower than a F-250. Based on the recommendations of several forum members on thedieselstop and powerstroke.org I purchased V code front springs, B code rears (modified with Excursion leaves and spacers), a F250 rear swaybar, custom valved Blistiens and Icon dual shock front setup. The install went great, about 8 hours on my friends lift. Everything is stock from Ford, and everything bolted right in. The difference is unbelievable! I don't know why Ford did not sell them this way. I took the Jeep for a shakedown tow, and the Excursion handled it great.
