You are welcome!

I will be taking the Ex in to the dealer next week and will report if this fix helps the mushy brakes.

Keep in mind... these are not for every 08 expy..

I have a 2008 limited & checked the VIN vs. a dealer and called Ford and had no open recalls on my particular truck. Depends heavily on your mfg date.. i don't recommend calling Ford - they told me 10 times i could do it on the website by entering your VIN.. but i wanted a voice. After the 9th or so time she told me, i figured it might be accurate online also.

The door spring issue was fixed during my tire rotation - oil change scheduled maintenance. Took minutes only.

Really? They have to pull all the door panels off.

I hope mine goes as fast as yours did. I need to get the oil change done soon. I just got my case of Royal Purple off EBay so I should be good to go this week.

Minutes as in about 30 more than a normal 5,000 mile service takes. No more than 90 total.

There's a kit for the recall. Check that the dealer has the parts.

I guess a pro can pull a panel in 5 minutes, put the spring in in 1-2. Sounds about right.

I will call to make sure all is well before I show. I have done it the other way and gotten quite the suprise. I will see how long it takes them for mine and report back.

Dealer did my door handle while I was in for some basic TLC...

They should automatically check for these things if they're doing their job properly.

Funny thing was... we'd had no trouble, but they replaced the spring any way.

Well, I got the oil changed BUT no springs. Their system showed they had them but none to be found. The guy before me had the same issue we both got oil changes and tire rotations on the house though. I am now waiting for my call that they are in.
