Better suspension on 07 Expedition

Besides replacing the Contijunk tires on my 4x2 07 EB (has tow package), I have been considering putting a new spring set in to reduce height by about 2 inches (in order to lower cg for stability purposes). I would also like to reduce the boat wallow when turning but not impact ride quality - too much.

Any ideas or does anyone know of a good supplier of a spring kit that won't make it ride like a truck (no pun intended - ??)?

(this is duplicate of my post on the other Expedition site as I am a nubie and did not see this site for 07/08's)

btw - a response on that list reported less wallow with stiffer torsion bar.

I put the stiffer bars from Hellwig on my 08 4x4 and it made a very nice improvement. Very stable in the corners and that is with just the sway bar addition.

I memory serves me correct the Hellwig front is 1.5" and the rear is 21mm.

The stock bars should be 1.375" front and 19mm rear so you do get a considerably beefier bar.

Took me about 20 minutes to install these suckers and no alignment needed.

Thanks for the reply!

Did the ride get much stiffer from the beefer sway bars or just less roll when cornering?

It didn't get any rougher when traveling down the road. It will be stiffer when you hit a bump with only one tire or side as the sway bar is being used at that point.

The new bar will keep it tighter when cornering.

10-4. Thanks very much for the information This sounds like the best option for me so far; that 20 minute install thing really caught my eye.

Thanks, again!
