I found this while searching for lifts. What does everyone think?

www.4x4parts.com

Frontier Suspension Package
Thinner, rounded edges for better flexibility. Easy installation. Extension of ABS line and brake lines is recommended. Includes longer rear shocks. These coils replace your factory coils. Made to work with stock or after-market shocks with the same amount of travel. Made of high quality steel using cold-wound process which virtually reduces settling or sagging. Provides improved support for vehicles equipped with a winch or heavy bumper. Will not require removal of upper ball joint to install. Requires coil compressor for installation. Unlike spacers, these coils will NOT cause contact of upper a-arm with upper coil bucket. Unlike spacers, these coils compress so that wheel travel is not lost by the amount of lift. Coils keep the factory CV angles and steering components within factory design parameters. Powder coated black for longevity. Have not been tested with spacers so they are not recommened for use with spacers. Can be used with drop down design suspension lift for additional lift. Spring rate is increased marginally which keeps the ride quality comfortable. Suspension lift includes two front coils and two rear add a leaf. Amount of front lift will be limited depending on which coil over shock you are using. Different models have different shocks so degree of lift may vary. Includes 2 Rancho RS5000 rear shocks.
Price - $275.00

That's the one I asked about last week. Only it had Bilstein shocks.

I really didn't get any replies.

I think, like me, most people with an '05 or '06 won't be doing any radical lifts or mods for fear of screwing something up and being denied a warantee repair. With a lift, they can say that it affects every part of the suspension and drivetrain, including the engine. It's just not worth the risk right now.

Well guys, I'm interested in this type of lift with Bilstien shocks too. I'm pretty sure the front end will be stiffer with some lift - as well as the back. I suspect the rear will raise more than the front giving a more nose low attitude - which is not what I'm after.

For the price, it may be worth giving it a shot. If the front doesn't work out, a different set up could be had. The added leaf in the rear with the longer shocks (more travel) will be the way to go for the back end no matter what.

With a better price and Bilstein shocks, the shocks would be half the cost.

I'm just wondering how much stiffer the front will be with the different coils and the rear with an extra leaf.

The write up at AC said this lift can be used in conjunction with the 2" leveling kit. That may help even the front and the rear. Also give you about a 4" lift in the front, I'm guessing.

the write up says "Have not been tested with spacers so they are not recommended for use with spacers. Can be used with drop down design suspension lift for additional lift."

perhaps with new upper a-arms, spacers can be used. stock a-arms probably wouldnt leave enough room for spacers and you are back to the problem of the coil bucket hitting the arm at extension.

That is the lift I am getting ready to order. I am getting the Bilsteins though. And I am going with the shackles instead of the AAL as I feel you would get better articulation that way.

Nizmogizmo that kit looks very well made. I would love to hear your opinions about the ride quality on road, and performance off road. once you get it on of course.

I got the package yesterday and bust it open, the parts are very well machined with nice clean edges and great finish...although the parts wont be seen after install it still is neato :D I was impressed with the packing because every part had its own bubble rap like you would see with say..chrome parts or show quality stuff that Greg didn't want scratched before I got them. I am going to try to start the install tonight when I get home. The instructions that came with it are very detailed, I did a pre read of the instructions and I think that Greg with titan specialist has his noggin together. I truely beleive that this kit should be a wiz to install. I will give you guys the best write up i can...im not very good at reviews but can at least give you an idea of what to expect.

SOOooo stay tuned ....more to come.

motocopter & 2k5nismo:

Have either of you guys gotten this lift yet? I want to hear an opinion on it before I buy it. So far, all I've read was from the people that put the spacer lift on. This was the lift I was leaning to get, but I wanted to know weather or not it was any good.

4x4parts.com said:

So does that mean that the coil springs don't lift the front end up as much as the spacers do?

Also, the site doesn't specify how much lif tthe rear end will get with the add a leafs. It only says 1.5" with the shackle kit.

I had the lift put on yesterday, and first impressions are very good. It doesn't ride nearly as harsh as I had expected. I noticed a slight 'floaty' feeling while driving on the interstate, but all in all I am impressed so far. It looks much better now, especially with the 33s on it. I will get some pics up soon.

I just filled the tank yesterday after I had the tires put on. I also reset the MPG computer, when I got to my house it was reading 14.8 mpg. Before I reset it, it was averaging about 15.3. Once I burn through this tank of gas I can give you a better idea of what to expect, but for now that is all I can tell you.
