    Pretty sure KYB include the lower spring perches so should save you a step.

    Yes they do, that was part of the reason for buying those. I've heard they run softer than Blistein but much better than Monroe's.

    Today's project is installing the new carbon fiber rear taillights!

    https://www.4wheelparts.com/p/bilst...s-shock-absorber-24-248129/_/R-BBGL-24-248129

    Google around for a coupon code.
    I found a 5% off code. I did store pick up as I have one about an hour away and been meaning to check it out.
    Nice folks to deal with and most everyone else has bumped the price up to $143 a strut.

    So even though those are for an f150 they still work on the Expeditions?

    Yes. The 15-17 Expedition shares a front with the F150.
    It utilizes a crossbar through the shock eyelet and 2 bolts into the lower control arm.
    The older Expeditions used a single bolt through the shock eyelet to attach to the LCA.
    Prepping to install mine as we speak.

    Do those Bilstein's come with the bolts & nuts to secure it to the lower control arm? I am looking to replace mine as well, but I'm not sure if the existing bolts are reusable? Ford doesn't sell them separately from the strut.
    Will this model of Bilstein provide the same ride height as before? I know you were looking to go higher, but I'm just looking for replacement.

    Yes the Bilsteins come with new lower hardware as the bolts are pressed into the OEM shock mounting bracket.
    If you are wanting standard ride height don’t waste the extra money on the 5100s just get the 4600s.
