Great information.

No overload spring. So if I go with the Airbags, do I need to do anything with the rear springs? My thought process is that the front ones were tired, I assume the rear are as well? Or maybe I don't understand the mechanics of bags.

Ok - I've done the reading and I'm sold on the air bags. The one you link too is for a P/U. Yeah - I know its the same but they do make one for the Excursion. Air Lift kit #57340. Does this one work or is there a reason I should consider the F250 one? I'm stoked to put these on. Thanks everyone!

Excursion bottoming out

Get the one for the Excursion. Probably slightly different hose route kit or different height mounting brackets.

I doubt your rear springs are worn out. I think the front fatigue because they are so undersized.

The application and kit for the Excursion will probably be different but that’s what I installed on my F350 (Load Lifter 5000’s) they came with two sets of U-bolts- one set for use with overloads, and the other for use without. There is a disclaimer that some owners have reported a harsh ride when combining them with the overloads, and hence supply the additional U-bolts should the overloads need to be removed. I have overloads and have had no issues with the ride quality. The Directions are pretty straight forward with minimum/maximum distance between top and bottom bracket. Yes, there are several options on design and application— mine were for use with 5th wheel frame brackets. The air springs are not made to lower and raise the stock ride height, only to support or bring the truck back to level when carrying or towing a heavy load. They do have additional directions for a vehicle that may already have vehicle sag in the rear, to restore the factory ride height which doesn’t apply to your situation. The air bags are to always have a minimum of 5 lbs. air pressure kept in them. It’s a very easy install, IMO.
