CT Performance suspension upgrade

Just wanted to tell all the Ex owners that the suspension mods recommended and sold by Cary at CT Performance are well worth every penny.
After getting everything done, my wife immediately noticed the improved ride. I absolutely love the new look and feel. I just wish I would have done this a few years ago.
It took a couple days to do in my time between work jobs and was pretty straight forward.
I had to make a 700 mile trip today and at every stop I received compliments on the looks.

Thank you Cary for all your phone support and answering all my questions before the purchase and during the install.

Cary is THE MAN when it comes to stuff like this. He's one of a handful of people out there who's opinion I truly value.

Don't know how to post pics but they are in my profile under the Exterior Album.
I put on 20" rims from 2010 F-350. 2" Wheel spacers. V & B springs with Cary's modifications to the rear. New U-Bolts, 2" hangers, new front sway bar links, Cary's modded Bilstein shocks, and an adjustable trac bar.
Really is unbelievable how much of a difference it made to the way it looks and rides.

A little late to the party here, I have been thinking about the mod since for a while, the big hold up for me is how much higher the truck is post mod. I have to be able to get in the garage still, and for my short wife and kids I do not want to make getting in and out more difficult. So what did it do to yours? How is it still holding up?

Just a FYI we have done hundreds of these..don't know anyone that's worn out any parts...I've put 80k on mine.

As far as heights. All depends on tire size and garage height. Mine ran 35" tires and would clear my 7' garage door.

Getting into the lifted Excursion..my wife's 5'2..no issues but Amp steps are a option we can provide if needed.

We can help set yours up for your needs. PM me.
