Im looking new shocks for my lifted excursion. What shocks are you guys running? I have searched and see lots of options for stock and f-250 but no so much lifted Ex. Also, is the shock the same for 250 and excursion?

I am not lifted and still running stock shocks, but I can give you my opinion!

Excursions sit on a F250 platform, so shocks should be similar if not the same. If you are 4wd you will have way more options than us 2wheelers. Most of the big names - are that for a reason - great product and (sometimes) not so great prices. Never searched for lift shocks, but Bilstein always show up.

I would check out 4wheel parts, Summit, etc. There is a vendor here that may pop up, but it's been a minute since your post. I think his name is Cary/Corey with CNC Fab. Should be able to help better than me.

Front shocks are the same as an f250, rears are not. Fox gets my vote for shocks.

I think the stock f250 sits 2" higher than a stock 4x4 X so would think a shorter shock is needed.

Find out the brand of lift kit you have installed currently, call the maker and ask them for the length of the front and rear shocks usually they give you 2-3 lengths.

extended, collapsed, and static. Then find a good quality pair, rancho, pro comp, fox, bilstien blah blah and order the length you need for the front/rear.

*be advised shocks will not help ride quality very much at all. It will help keep tires wearing evenly by reducing air time tires have on bumpy roads but the front/rear springs are the BIGGEST influence you have on ride quality. Shocks help but even installing super overpriced fox units will not improve the ride drastically etc.
