Has anyone combined the two? I would probably be using the 1.5" lift setting.

Just wondering what to expect if I do this...will this decrease the life expectancy of the springs, or cause problems with brake lines?

Just looking for feedback and/or opinions from anyone who has tried this combination or considered it.

I think Penski will chime in here, he had this combo on his 2nd Gen I believe. IIRC, great flex. I actually plan on doing this...need extended length rear shocks also though.

Aaron?

I have adjustable prg shackles set at 1.5" and a deaver that gives me 1.5"
Brake lines, no. Leaf pack life expectancy, yes, it will flatten out overtime. Mine still has a ~10-20% arch left in it, almost flat, but i have a 150# camper shell (200# with tools), so I'm not the guy to ask.

My Frontier has the PRG Advanced Coilover package w/bilsteins...aren't the bislteins that come with this package an extended length shock?

Me too, 2" Deaver AAL & adjustable shackles set at 1" with longer bilsteins, ride is very nice & smooth. I've been running this setup for about 4 months and so far no issues.

I'm going to try this set-up as well...Has anyone posted a write up on the installation? I tried searching and came up empty. I didn't get the installation instructions for the shackles. My experience dealing with suspensions is all with my old pathfinder (coil springs), these leaf springs are a new monster for me.

This is the set up that causes the rear tire to hit the front part of the rear fenders when flexing.

Thanks Penski...but this write-up doesn't help me. I should have specified, a write-up on installation of the adjustable rear shackles.

I'm only running 265/70r17 tires so I don't anticipate problems with rubbing.

Thanks for all the replies and feedback.

Really? I will have to check it next time I am wheeling...
