Install X-Spec suspension upgrade!
By LittleStevie on


1997 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV


Five months ago I installed the
Explorer Express X-Spec suspension
kit. New sway bars, performance
shocks, and a 1.5" lowering kit (barely
visible lowering). Improved body roll,
steering response, and general
stability of the vehicle tremendously.
I will never drive a stock Explorer
again! $900 for the kit, about $400 to
install. Well worth it!

And I don't work for them either!

PS Put a good set of tires on
too...Michelin Cross Terrain SUV

Best Features

Body styling, versatility with seating and cargo room.

Worst Features

Cornering, handling, and performance is terrible stock-- X-Spec takes care of all of this. Unless you plan to upgrade with this kit, do not buy an Explorer!
