Just bought if wednesday. Iam new to the nissan trucks, but i did trade in an 06 pathfinder with a 2.5 inch lift and 285,s. Plan to run the same front set up but what do yuo guys recomend for the rear?:hi:
welcome to the club, if your going to run a 2.5 in lift in the front you have a couple options based on personal preference. if you want the truck to sit perfectly level then your going to want to lift the rear 1.5 in to match the front, they have 1.5 in blocks PRG Products there is a possibility of some axle wrap on hard acceleration with blocks but not much and blocks are cheap and fairly easy to put on. you can also do 1.5in shackles https://www.4x4parts.com/nissan/frontier-rear-lift-shackles-p-3434.html since shackles lengthen the leaf springs they will slightly lower the spring rate and change the pinion angle slightly and the leafs over time will flatten, prg also has adjustable shackles that you can change the lift from 1, 1.5, or 2 in PRG Products. Now if you don't mind having a similar look to what you have now with the front slightly lower than the rear you can get an add a leaf pack PRG Products will give you 2 in of lift so the rear will only be .5 in higher than the rear and they add to your payload capacity, improve ride quality and help keep your rear leafs from going flat or worse over time. really the best small lift for the rear that you can do. cost a little more than the rest and a bit harder to install but better all around. PRG (PreRunnerGreg) really knows his stuff and had some really quality stuff. there are cheaper options for the same stuff but he's the go to guy for most people on here.
