Here is the deal I live on a dirt road but the problem isnt just on them its on the normal paved road i feel every little bump and its driving me nuts.i realize the excursion is on. Truck frame but i mean every bump. Any help on what could fix this problem wold be great. Here is what i have
2002 ford excursion limited
Blistien shocks all around
Ras in the rear
Resent repairs and maintance
Ball joints, tires (285/75/16 at 70psi e rating),steering gear, sway bar bushings, tie rods and ends, and an alinment.
Sounds like your shocks may not be dampening due to being wore out, and you are just riding on the springs. I would start with the shocks (just happen to have a set for sale by the way - just cannot post up here due to low post count, they are stock replacement parts for a 2000 Exc).
Just installed my first set of Bilsteins and am very happy with their performance.

They are for the 4X4s - that is the mod I just completed on my 2000 - handles like a different vehicle! Very pleased. You may be able to do the rear but that will raise the tail end by a couple of inches for sure (am guessing I got 3"s ish...) so if you are not looking to lift the truck you may not want to go this way. If you do you will almost certinaly need to do some lifting in the front to keep it level.
