    It is a 4x4. I am very much a perfectionist. My ford dealer parts guy knows me well. He gives me a pretty decent discount. I will order them tomorrow. I have only had this rig for a thousand miles but I love it so far, always wanted one. I bleed blue and I am 6'6 so it is really the only SUV for me. Thank you again for your advice.

    Others have had success with junk yard springs, but I was giving you advice based on what I would do. Since I have already done this mod 7 years ago, back then, as well as now, I would opt for brand new OEM springs from Ford. Not from a spring shop, from Ford.

    If you have already upgraded your shocks to Bilsteins, you'll be fine. I thought you had original shocks.

    The OEM replacement Bilsteins for the Ex will work for the front, but when you go to replace them in the future, change to the OEM Bilstein replacements for the 4x4 F250.

    I forgot to double check, you do have a 4x4 Excursion, correct? It's not a 2-wheel drive model, right?

    Based on what you want (better springs, factory stance, etc) if that were my Excursion, I'd get a brand new set of V codes for the front and brand new B codes for the rear. I'd mod the B code springs so you can continue using the stock rear block that came on the Excursion. I'd also get new shocks. Get replacements meant for the Excursion for the rear, but get replacements sold for the F250 (stock 4x4) for the fronts.
