And at about $400/complete set, they are hard to pass up.
Exact same shocks for me too. I've had mine now for over 3 years and still have a great ride.

Sorry a drunk text. I have never replaced shocks on my own truck. Im dumb and like the floating on the harsh clouds feel. I drive my truck once a week and i have a 2019 company traverse and even with riding it 99% of the time it doesn't bother me. I dont feel much different. I think its because how much newer vehicles shutter so much

Getting a little closer to doing something here. Front end was a pogo stick on certain surfaces when pulling the trailer last weekend.

Picking up some excursion front spring to lower it. Not sure if Iíll like it or not. We will see. Not lifting it so whatever I chose for shocks will work on both setups.

It will either be ranch 9000ís or Fox shocks all the way around

Rancho RS9000XL’s.

I have Fox 2.0’s that are recommended for stock height Super Duty’s on our 03 Excursion with a 6.0, and with the lower ride height that the Excursion has there isn’t enough dampening.

Only was to get a decent ride on an excursion is to lift it. Sounds like an oxy moron I know ...

One thing I did was remove the front bump stops-it helped a lot

I might have to take the bump stop out. I get really tired of hitting them all the time.

I went and did some measuring on the Excursion.

It is stock ride height, Fox 2.0 shocks for a Super Duty, and Energy Suspension bumpstops.

Shock length at ride height (eye to eye) is 17.375”
Available shock travel is 2.25”
Axle pad to bumpstop is 1.5”
Axle pad to frame (bumpstop removed) is 3.75”

With the Fox shock it isn’t going to be possible to remove the bumpstop because the shock will bottom out on a hard bump.
It is obvious from the witness marks that the bumpstop contacts the axle pad regularly.

Rancho RS9000XL p/n 999267 has:
Compressed length 14.650”
Extended length 22.250”
Travel 7.600”

The foxes we have, have a rubber bushing that contacts the body when they bottom out. It doesn't hit internally. We rarely have any issues bottoming out anyway.
