Excursion supension VS f-250/350 suspension

Is there any difference in the height between these 2 trucks?

When im beside superduties they seem higher than my X (both 4x4)
My truck is 9 years old and maybe the front suspension is tired?

Yup, our Excursions are specifically built to be able to park inside a standard garage. So they are lower and more level than the pickups. Also, since our suspensions are a little softer is why in the manual a snow-plow attachment is not recommended.

oh I see...
So if I get a suspension lift w/ spring (let say 4 inch) it will be 4 inch taller than a pick up. Would that mean that I would get around 6 inch more my stock height?

I suppose most companies have built their kits according to the pickup specs rathed than the Xcursion

We have developed suspension upgrades that cure the Excursions handling problems..hundreds of 100% happy customers ..lots of posts on most of the forums about the results.
I can PM or send you a email on the mods involved and costs if you like.

Off the shelf suspension kits will not fix the problems as they are setup for a pickup..

You can send me all the info to my PM box

But honnestly im not looking for a lift right now, but its in my plan...
I would like something mild like a 2,5'' leveling kit to a 4'' lift max.

What exactly do you mean by ''handling problems''
