    2000 Ford Excursion axle swap question

    The coil suspension turns better and rides better. Bigger brakes as well. For most things you'll do, the 50 is plenty strong. What size tires are you running?

    I think that's the reason you don't see them much. They interfere with the "normal" "truck things". It's easy to forget that what seems normal or useful, can be odd or even a hindrance to the average consumer.

    Seeking input -- upcoming vehicle purchase
