I saw a nice new black stretch Limo today. I guess its an ELLLLLLLLLLL. This isnít the first Iíve seen, but I guess this is the only limo option for Ford now. I still see many Excursion Limos, but with 2005 the last year operators continue to still need fresh Limos.
I wonder what the 3.73 (XH6) LIMITED SLIP rear axle looks like that is only available on the (17L) EL Limo Prep package. Iím sure they had to do something to bump the GVW above #7900. In stock form, Front axle rating is only #3700, and #4250 for the rear with a payload of only about #1800 and thatís with a non-stretched vehicle. Perhaps someone can take a peek at one an see what the GVW is and if it has a sold rear or a heavy duty independent rear. About the only information I could find at the ford fleet site was that they Expeditions could be stretched a maximum of 140Ē
Call Krystal Koach and ask. Might check with Don Kott Lincoln Mercury and ask for Donna and see she will give you the specs. You can also check LCT Magazine's online site for vendors to the industry under coachbuilders. Good Luck.

Reason: more info given
Yes the Limited slip from the EL limo package can be put in any off the shelf expy. I doubt they do anything to the rated GVW as any upfitter can change the GVW on their own. The only weights that matter are what your vehicle is tagged for and what the tires are rated for (at least that's FL out look on it in a WRITTEN LETTER FROM THE DOT).
99 Expedition limo suspension problems please help
I just bought a 99 expedition 200" limo built by empire coach. I have been trying to fix it. Some of the parts on the suspension are original, i am having hard time finding the parts for the upper control arm its not original I did some research found that the upper ball joint came from a 99 gmc yukon denali. Which had four bolts holding it. I also put a heavy duty shocks from yukon but had to modify the shocks by cutting the half" where the bolts go in to hold it on each side so it slides in. It has a air shock on the control arm which has no lines going to it. We put some air in it. My question is my upper control arm bushing are gone what vehicle bushing will fit this arm. please help me.
