excursion leveling kit

I just bought a 2001 excursion for my wife and want to put a small lift on it. I was wondering if anybody has a picture of theirs with a 2" leveling kit with 33" tires. Just looking for some different ideas to try and decide what to do.

Not sure if I have a levelling kit (maybe somebody knows what it is set at) It has a 3.5" block on the rear and add-a-leafs on the front. I am running 33's on it now and it had 35's when I got it with no tire rub.

Not to Hi-jack your thread, but I would like to know what is better to lift the front end....all new springs or new shackles and hanger? I don't really like the add-a-leafs I have now as the front end is very stiff compared to rear end. If I went with a new shackle setup what kind of lift would I need to keep the same height I have now?

When I got it with the 35" Toyo M/T's (and leaking up pipes) I was getting around 12-14 on the highway (70mph average). With the 33's and everything fixed up mechanically I was getting 15-16 stock. I have just recently added the tuner and have not got it out on the highway much, mainly just mixed city/highway and am getting around 15-16 still (all hand calculated) I don't know if it is my right foot or the winter blend fuel, but I am hoping I can eventually get this thing up to around 18-20mpg on the highway like my LB7 Duramax was before I sold it for this one. Hopefully that is possible...I am still new to Powerstrokes and am still learning.

Don't get a level kit for a Excursion whats needed is to replace the under rated springs with SD V codes front and modded B codes rear. This alone will transform the truck and lift the front 2"..Many additional very cheap mods to fix the Ex handling problems. Many posts on this and I've helped hundreds do these.

PM if I can help.

Yes as long as the motor is a PS.
