Pro Comp ES3000 Shocks

I've been searching through the forum with respect to information on the Pro Comp ES3000 series shocks but haven't found anything. I've also looked at procompusa.com and they say nothing about applications for a Frontier.

Does anyone have experience with/know if they have a rear shock that will be compatible with a 1.5-2" lift via PRG leaf springs? (about 2" longer than stock)

Thanks guys

PS: Do 2-3" front spacers cause coil bucket knocking ALL THE TIME or just under full suspension travel?

To get them to work you will likely have to find the right sized bushing inserts and collars.
PRG's shock listed for a 2-4" lift is ~22.5 inches long at full extension if you want to use that as a benchmark. They aren't 2" longer than stock though, maybe closer to 1.5. Be prepared to unclip/modify the brake lines or replace them with longer ones.

Both 2 and 3 inch spacers allow coil bucket contact, but only with the 3" spacer will it be excessive.

Thanks for the info. Since I despise random noises from vehicles, I think I will just save up more $$$ and go for coilover suspension in the front. It will be worth it in the end.

Anyone know what a realistic amount of lift would be, say with the Radflo 650 lb coilovers? I have read that the lift is between 0.5" and 3". Sounds reasonable since the overall length of the coilover, I believe, is 1" longer than the stock unit.

Please, everyone share their experiences with other brands of coilover suspension modifications (height gain, ride quality, noise, etc)

Thanks all!

CDNMike, I recently went from stock 2011 PRO-4X to adding the PRG Advanced 4WD Package (650lb Coils). It's well worth the $$$. I got about 2" of lift in the front and about 1.5" in the rear with the Deaver AAL. This is based on the stock PRO-4X FSM numbers. I'm going to crank up another 1/2 on the front to level out the truck and hope that the ride is still great. Good luck with your choice...
