Just to beat a dead horse and from personal experience with excursions.
They are heavier than the superduty pickups. Replace the following and get an alignment. Use quality parts not duralast junk or you/ll hate yourself.
Upper/lower ball joints
track bar bushings (look at upp track bar bracket carefully common to find cracks/cracked bolts
Draglinks, steering end joints
shocks while not a huge game changer help tires wear better and slight improvement in ride
check leaf spring bushings
then get a alignment from a quality shop to make sure everything is lined up correctly. There isn't a point with high mileage trucks to only replace one side of components or just one ball joint etc.
check tire pressure/have tires rotated to put the tires where they need to even out treadwear. Sometimes a tire causes treadpull where a bad/worn out suspension items wears a tire out to pull certain directions until its rotated to the back to get worn out straight again (generally speaking of course)
