Doing some work on my 2000 Excursion

Need to do shocks at least - am seeing good reviews on the Blisteins, but want to get the truck level since it is a little low in the front, was thinking about lifting the truck 2 - 3 inches with plans to run LT285/75R16E1 126P W Dunlop Rover MTs

Any suggestions/recommendations as to which lift I should look at for that setup?

Best..V with a 2" hanger and my modded rear B codes with correctly valved Bilsteins. I have helped hundreds cure the Ex handling problems.

PM me if I can help.

Anyone have any experience with the 5" Superlift

Product Information (K648) Superlift www.superlift.com

And this looks like a pretty nice setup...

Any feedback on the quality of the Superlift compared to the Revtek/orther?

You likely can run the 285 without a lift.......lots of people do including myself.......mine are 285/75R16 Cooper ATR's and fit for sure with no rubs ever. I would say90 to 95% of the Ex guys I know with 285's don't have an issue at stock height......the othe 5% or so have an occasional touch in some abnormal situations since not all 285's are created equally between the different tire companies....

How many miles are you getting out of the Cooper ATR's?

I have stock height & plan on getting larger & more aggressive tires when my current tires wear out.

Mine has a bit of a drop in the front - has yours "settled" like that am guessing 2" - so am not sure if I want to do a lift, leveling kit or this V/B mod that I am currenty researching.

Just put them on the Ex last fall......about 4k on them......but I have a 97 Toyota 4runner that I currently have over 50k on the LT265/75R 16's ATR's .....haven't measured tread depth...... but I am guessing by looks they are just under 1/2 tread !! .....which is exactly why I got them for the Ex .....that and I am really pleased with the all around performance.....great in rain, snow etc....never really had them in any deep mud ......you will have to keep them rotated or they do get noisy. IMHO they are a very good tire and a great value for the $$ and performance.

I have almost 120k on mine and I am not touching the bumpstops. I have at least an inch before that happens but they the stops are leaving witness marks.....so they are touching on the hard jounces. Still no rubs on the tires though. Is yours sitting on the bumpstops ??
