    I need some advice here.....

    Yes it has been discussed in the past BUT first Generation Expeditions are a bit different.

    Has anyone recently put new shocks on their Truck?? I'm looking for the best driving experience from a comfort prospective as I don't go off road at all..

    Any direction with this will be helpful.
    Thanks
    Jack

    I just went from an old rotted set of shocks to a set of KYB Excel-G. It Das recommended by my shop and thus far I really like them. All my driving is on road as well.

    Very comfortable and no body bounce.

    I consider Bilstein the 'Michelin' of shocks.

    do you have air ride, i.e. four-corner load-leveling suspension?

    I do, thus these are my results. Front: Monroe 18570144 and these in the Rear: Monroe 37202ST.
