Springs

Looking to replace the springs on my '02 X and have found some springs from SD Truck Springs that are less expensive, any one tried these and are they going to last? Thanks,

Everyone is going to recommend ATS Springs including me. I have X and Modified C codes on my Excursion and everything I needed was shipped to me on a pallet ready to go. Call them and ask for Junior and he will set you up with everything you need. SD springs are cheap but you don’t want to skimp on your springs.

Yes people have tried them and no they do not last, but then again no springs last because they are a consumable wear item. All springs sag with use and time.


Are you wanting to replace the stock springs both front and rear ?
what ride height do have now and what ride height do you want ?
is price more important then quality ?

Answer those questions and I’ll recommend a suitable replacement

Go with ATS Springs instead. They are a supporting vendor here and their rep, Junior at ATS posts and helps a ton.

I bought used v codes...they lasted about 4-5 years before they were sagged too bad...I'm now ATS on all 4 corners. Highly recommend them.

I used SD springs for my lift removal (lowered it down 4in) and was not happy with their shipping quotes. The order didn't arrive on time and caused a major headache in prepping my rig for a 10-day vacation out of state. Will not be buying from them again. As for their products, I haven't had a problem with any specific item that I've ordered. In fact, I will be removing their springs again and ordering another set to drop it down even lower. My rig still sits too high for my liking, so I'm going to be repeating all of the same work once it warms back up again.
