Its been a slow road to get these arms figured-out, but we are getting closer. These are pics of Adam's truck, 3.5" front lift and a 2" rear block. He has 5150 Bilstiens in the rear. The front uses a tall billet spacer and a very modified upper a-arm, uniball joints, it also has a urethane droop stop incoroprated to the upper arm and the system is dead silent. The '05-'06 brake lines and ABS wires are plenty long for this set-up. The thing to note is how tall the truck sits but look at the amount of clearance between the upper a-arm and the coilbucket.This truck has about the same amount of down travel as stock, but utilizes more of the shocks up travel and the ride is the same as factory with improved bottoming resistance due to the urethane bumpstops. Im hoping to get the replacemnt arms in production soon. But here are some pics for you guys to check out of the protoype arms. I dont advertise here.. yet. So I dont want to post my site, but if you have questions feel free to email me. Also, I thnk the 2.5" diameter coilover is soon to be a reality. Thanks...greg

Oh yeah, fogot to mention that part. It is a 4wd (not nismo, but that wouldnt make a difference anyway) and the tires are 33-12.5 dunlop's. the mudflaps are removed, and on occasion they bearly rub while turning (not enough to do any trimming). Im hoping the arms will be available in the next few weeks, im really happy with the outcome of this project.

2 or 4wd, with or with out the nismo package. The parts we are modifing and changing are the same on all models. You cant really see form these pics but the upper arm is strengthened and has a urethane pad bolted to it to prevent any interferance betwwen the upper arm and the coilbucket. The coilovers will not allow that and the height wil lbe adjustable a few inches. but this arm with a simple billet coilspacer is what you see here. Im not sure ona price yet, but for the whole package im guessing around

i dont know much about tire or anything about cars but with tire sizes

305 70 r 16

285/75/16



what do the numbers stand for..here is what I think so far

the first number= tire size in inches so.. 305 would be 30 inches...285 would be 28 inches

the second number= I have no freaking clue

the third number= rim size

can someone clarify this for me

thanks in advance

the first number represents the width of the tire, the second number is a percentage of the width and represents the sidewall height, and the last number is the rim size

this site should be able to calculate these numbers into inches for you...

tested out my new upper arms today and was very pleased with the results. No more clanking noises and slightly better articulation. They also look better than what they replaced. Can't wait for some new coilovers and mini leaf pack that are in the works.

Is that a 2" lift spacer or 3" ? so a person can get a Idea how much clearance one will have from the UCA and bucket with that size of spacer, And could you post a pic of you truck so we can see the lift. Thanx

If I remember correctly the prices that were posted are intro prices. I was talking with Greg and if I am not mistaken he is given his first set of the new uca's at a special deal.

The spacers on my truck measure approx. 1 3/4" and I think it gives around a 2 1/2" lift. I don't have any pictures but will try and post one later. I paid $549 shipped through Greg.
