Shocks

My Excursion sees a lot of back roads so as a result shocks last me maximum of two years before they are leaking and are shot. Can the shocks with remote fluid reservoirs be used on a truck without a lift kit?

Your Ex needs a lift so it won't bottom out constantly..we developed many suspension upgrades for the Ex..

We can get you Bilsteins RR's to fit a stock Ex. PM me if I can help.

Thanks Cary, next days off I will pump you for more info. I would like to stay away from a lift kit if possible as my wife has CP so any additional climb-in height would be a problem. Was kind of thinking of going to a full air suspension so I can raise the ride height once my sweet is inside. What is special about those particular Beilstien's.

Bilsteins have a lifetime guarantee. I have Bilsteins on everything I own and just ordered a set for my wife's car. Best shock going for the $.

Bilsteins are under rated. They are bad ***. I ran them on my mustangs and I recommend them to everybody. I am about to get some bypass Bilsteins for my bronco, they are cheaper than King or Fox and more badass.
