2016 EXPWY 2WD oversteer

Ive been messing with this for awhile and still dont have a answer. My 2016 steering is VERY sensetive. It oversteers very easily. I was thinking of upgrading the shocks and struts but not finding many decent manufactures making this for the EXPY. Any suggestion? It has done it since new. I did get rid of the 18" tires and went with 20" . that helped but its still there. Any ideas? Neither Bilstein of Eibach make any that fit...

Sometimes an over responsive steering issue is due to the Toe alignment being off. Have you ever brought in in somewhere and had the alignment checked?

What alloro said above ^^^^^^ and:

Is the rear end sitting high or the front sitting low or is it factory level?

Does it have stock suspension?

Does it have stock-diameter tires?

Does it have stock-width tires?

Does it have the same size tires all around?

Isn't part of the issue that it's a front wheel drive vehicle? My wife's 2016 has MUCH more sensitive steering than her RWD '03. And don't even get me started on the difference between her car and my rwd Excursion! ��

No such thing as a front-drive Expedition. Plus when I saw oversteering in the title I thought you were doing some drifting with the thing. Hanging that tail out on the turns!!

Unless of course you remove the rear driveshaft and drive around with it in 4WD.

We are discussing a RWD Expedition. Original poster--could you please DEFINE what you mean by oversteer? In a race car, or on snowy/wet roads, it means the rear end of the vehicle spins out. If you mean that your truck turns sharper than you expect without breaking traction at lower speeds, you probably have an alignment issue if your suspension is stock. If your suspension is modified in any way, please describe the modifications.

Unless you have an imbalance in front/rear suspension, changing springs or shocks would not be expected to help you. I would first get a good 4 wheel alignment at a competent shop, not a volume tire store or someplace that does alignments as a profit center, as a starting point. 20" vs 18" tires should not do anything meaningful; Expeditions had 15" wheels for years with no characteristic oversteer problems.
