To add to Roger's post, the Excursion uses less springs to give a softer ride, as it is technically a passenger vehicle. If you get one, you can replace the springs with F250 springs, and eliminate the problem. Just be aware, if you do, you will get a much stiffer ride.

Terry, I'm not sure that they're a direct replacement... I think I read (I'm getting old y'know) that there is a difference in shackle placement on the frame between the Ex and the Superduty trucks... but don't quote me on that...

I can tell you that putting decent shocks, a Helwig sway bar and the radius rods made the ride much more stiff... not quite unpleasant, but enough harder to notice the difference. I can't imagine how harsh Superduty springs would make it!

Roger, I have changed them out, but, like you, I am getting older... I can't remember if I had to perform any modifications when installing them. Next time the customer brings it in for service, I will duck under it and see if anything strikes me... Hopefully it won't be the spare tire!

Well if he gets hit in the head we can assume it came from the rust belt
