2012 Equator RMZ

Does the RMZ have the same suspension as the pro4x.

I pulled up the specs on a rmz and looks like they have the same equipment. locking diff, skid plates, and bilstein shocks were on the list.

The reason I am asking is because i was looking at the Ready Lift lift kit seen in the link below. Says in the note that it raises the pro4x 1 inch higher in the front compared to the regular frontier. So is that to much lift oin the front since ur would raising 3.5 inches over all.

$330+shipping for a spacer/shackle lift is a rip. It's not even shiny.

I don't know about too much lift, but you will have some coil bucket contact with a 2.5 front lift. also the front of your truck will be higher than the back. That may be your desire, but thought you should know.
X2 on that one being too expensive for what it is. you could get alldayfab setup much cheaper, or for about the same money a prg setup.

Yea that's not the kit I was gonna buy I just happened to see the foot note on there and was curious.

I was wanting to make sure that I would need a 2in spacer up front and a 1.5 in the back to be level on an PRO4X since would be raising it and extra inch on the front compared to base model Frontier.

No it will not raise a Nismo/Pro4x/RMZ any more than a 'regular' model. The heights listed on Nissan's site are the same for all the V6 models.

The difference is in the tires, 265/70r16 (30.6") vs 265/75r16 (31.6"). Even that wont raise the truck a whole lot.

That will be close to level. Mine is, but I have some xtra weight in the bed.

wonder when this Pro4x models use super special top secret unique parts and therefore is completely different from a cheap regular frontier belief will end.
