Excursion shocks

Any suggestions on replacement shocks for my '04? Our EX is our "car". We don't pull anything, it only carries the family and groceries. So, since it doesn't "work" do you have a suggesion for a "comfortable" shock for our family's "car". Thanks for your help......as always! ronbo

Bilstien 5100's are awesome. Even on stock height trucks. It made a world of difference on my F350. There is a shock, like mine, that works on the 0-1" lift trucks (basically, stock height)

^I agree they are the best bang for the buck when it comes to shocks.

I agree as well. Installed the 5100's a month ago and can't believe the difference. Very pleased.

#5100 not the best valving IMO and will not work without a lift.
Std HO's for a stock height will work better.
If you want your Ex to ride better and handle much better you must change the springs to V codes in front and modded B codes in the rear. I have helped hundreds do this mod. If I can help or if you would like additional info..PM me.
