Hello, I have have a 2000 Ford Excursion with a V10 Triton. It is not lifted I do not go off road with it. I am looking for advice on shocks. Everyone that I have talked with has said to go with Bilstein shocks. But what I'm reading is most people that have Jeeps or go off-roading or have lifted their trucks that's what they're using mostly. I have always taken my trucks and gotten Monroe's put on them or taking them to the Ford dealership. I'm looking for some advice I'm not quite sure what to do. I do Toe with it occasionally mostly around 3500 lb to 4,000 lb never over 7. Thank you in advance for your advice
I have trouble with my truck when braking. It shutters badly while braking at low and high speeds. Only time it does not do it too bad is when I've had to put my foot on the brakes hard and fast.

My soon has checked the brake pads (3/8" left), rotors have been checked and fine. Tires rotated and balanced. My husband thinks it could be the steering box. I am concerned driving it now and have a 1,800 mile mountain trip coming up!

What seems to make the problem better or worse? Nothing
How long have you had this problem? 7-8 weeks
Having problems shifting

The Indiana told way broke my windshield and i need estimate because there asking for it if you could help me I will really appreciate..
I was playing with the keypad on the door and accidentally locked the rear glass and now it won't unlock any way I attempt. Is this a code I need to put in the keypad. Dealerships act like they don't know what I am talking about, and just state it is the glass lock actuator which is of course not covered by my warranty.
How much should it cost to replace a fuel filter, air intake heater relay, and exhaust backpressure sensor on a 2000 Ford 4WD Excursion with 7.3 litre Powerstroke diesel turbo? This was determined by diagnostics run at a shop after the "check engine" light came on and my wife brought the car into the shop. The vehicle was running fine with no symptoms, other than the illuminated "check engine" light.
