Finally got a lift installed on the Zuki

So, after 75k miles on the truck (35k of them were mine) I got a lift installed.

I convinced myself that the initial shocks were on their last legs so I might as well replace the shocks and springs. At least that is how I convinced myself that it was needed. I bought the Old Man Emu kit from Nissteclifts. This included the front spring/shock up front and an add a leaf and shocks in the rear.

Here is the before pic.

Here are a few with just the front done:

And here is the finished product:

The ride is much improved and I am happy with the stance. I would love to go up a size or two with tires but I think that it will be unlikely until these wear down.

Looks nice! Rare to see a fellow Equator owner here!!

I'm running a 2011 Equator RMZ-4 Crew Cab in River Red (Nissan calls it Code Red)

Currently stock with the exception of ballistic nylon seat covers (F&R), Curt class 3 hitch and an Undercover tonneau cover.

It is a very nice color, too bad it was painted in 2009 when Nissan temporarily forgot how to paint and it is falling off in key places (the rear bumper is my fault where I tried to cover the chrome with rattle can bedliner). Fixing the paint issue is my next major order of business.

I'm in the same boat...gotta finish off my tires before I can justify a new bigger set to fit under the lift...looks good!

Look good. I might have to pay them a visit. Only thing is that my truck is brand new and I am limited on what I can do without voiding the warranty
