Have a good friend who installed Bilsteins on his stock 2001 Excursion 4WD and he said it helped. However, he says there is still too much " lean" when cornering. He said he thought his Excusion has always had a "wallowing" ride since it was new.

Not sure if he has a rear OE swaybar or not. If not, would installing a Helwig rear swaybar correct the lean or is there a fix with radius arms? Would modifying the suspension from stock endanger him or his family in any way?

Thanks in advance and I will pass along your recommendations.

A Swaybar should help if he does not currently have one. It would also add a safety factor.

i have installed the Hellwig sway bar on both of my Excursions and it helps with the body roll I like the hellwig over the stock because it is bigger in diameter.Unfortunately the ride quality on these things is not the greatest with worn-out springs, and they were undersized from the start.

Did you install the rear Hellwig sway bar only?

I installed the bar first then airbags,The bar will definitely help with body roll. They should of all come with a sway bar.
