Sorry I do not know, I am not familiar with the X suspension..
Nisstec or any other Sponsor here may be able answer that..
Our Frontiers have 2 different Shock Mount Bushings on the rear shocks..
The Upper Mount is just a Urethane Bushing for the mounting post. (Look at 3rd pic in 1st post)
The Bottom Mount has a Urethane Bushing with a Metal Sleeve for the Nut and Bolt..

Odd that the shock model# ends in H7. I have these shocks, but mine end in H5 which is what the linked chart indicates. I had to look again because I didn't think that model# existed. Good luck with the sale...they work great.

Have you measured the actual compressed and extended length to make sure they are not the A465-H7? Who knows if there was a mislabel somewhere down the line.

These were for a 3" lift, what happened was that the OME CS150R Med Duty Leaf Pack ended up lifting the rear a full 3" instead of the 1.5"-2" as stated in the Nisstec site.
My plan was to install the Pack plus a 1" block for the 3", I installed CST Spindles at the same time, I was going for a lift of 4"Front/3"Rear.

The leaf pack with no block increased the lift from shock mounting point to mounting point 3", it simultaneously increased the bump stop/strike pad distance 3" as well..
Original plan was suppose to be 2" lift from Leaf Pack, mounting point to mounting point and bump stop/strike pad..
Then add the 1" block, that would increase the mounting points by the 1" and not increase the distance of the bump stop/strike pad, since the block goes under the pack..
The shock down stroke was about 3/4" shorter than the distance of the bump stop/ strike pad, I never bottomed out because I did not have them on long enough to find out..

Good thing today, I sold them, payment is pending ..

Not sure of the discrepency, I noticed that as well, I agree it's a very good shock I have the 6253 (22.5" extended length) installed and work very well with my set up..

I did measure the shock, 24.35" extended length..
