my new to me X handles like a backwards Shopping Kart
I just purchased a 140k mile 03 excursion Eddie Baur with 6.0 L PS 4wd.
The front end drifts all over the place . not alignment drift, but does not actually return back to center. kind of have to keep correcting while going straight. i can brake and it is perfect. kind of like pushing a shopping kart backwards. just cant get it to not wander.
I want a 4-5 inch lift kit / suspension and was hoping it would fix the wander but i need to be sure.
This X will never see dirt. looking for looks only and a great ride or best that can be expected from a lifted excursion. No kits I have looked at say "we offer a great ride" anyone from persoanl experience say that with their lift?
The most important two things for me are RIDE COMFORT and LOOKS in that order. WAIT>>> a new # 1. Fix the current shopping kart syndrome in handling., then ride comfort then looks
I have read and read and seen a million different solutions... most are back from 05-06-07 years... i just want someone to say"this is what you need to do"
any help would be greatly appreciated
