Shocks

I purchased a 02' Excursion 2wd a little over a year ago. I replaced the stock shocks with the best that Monoroe sold at the time. Now ayear later 40,000 miles there going out again. So I was thinking of upgrading to Bilstien's or something similiar. What are you guys using?

We carry just about any shock you would want, but the Bilstiens are about the best for the money. I havent decided if Im going to lift my truck or not, but it will get Bilstiens for sure. We have put these shocks on many truck locally, and the roads in pennsylvania are far from smooth. They last long and will make a huge differance in the ride. They are a few bucks more, but worth every penny. LINK Skyjackers are good, and so are the Ranchos, we have many brands, so if you find something you like let us know. If we cant get you a good price Im sure one of the other vendors here can. Call if you have any questions.

p.s. we also carry Monroe, and havent sold a set yet. Well, maybe if you had a gun. lol

Do yourself a favour.... do the Bilsteins on the Excursion! They are a GREAT shock. The first time I rode in a truck, installed the Bilsteins, and test drove the truck..... I was FLOORED! Amazing......its about all I can say.
