How's it going everyone? Trying to get some info on my 2.5l i4 in my 2015 frontier. Wondering if there are any performance upgrades, cold air intact, anything like that available? Or if anybody has modified theirs a different way? Believe it or not I chose this as my daily driver project truck. Already lowered it but would like to get a little more power out of her. Im sure its possible just need pointed in the right direction. Thank you in advanced. Picture of my little work in progress for attention.

Kit i found from an ebay company called radz4rydz. 4 inch front drop struts and a 5 inch rear axle flip kit. Had it lowered around two years and drive **** michigan roads so it's due to be replaced.

Is the quality decent? How do the struts feel? I am guessing you got the kit with rear struts included? The details say their listing say going lower than 3" in the front requires alteration of the frame stops so just curious what you ended up having to do? I think 3" all around would be plenty enough for me though.

Sorry that was a typo on my part. I meant 3/5 but fat fingered the keyboard lmao. On a smooth road where im not dodging crater size pot holes i love the way it rides. It handles like a damn car. When I end up replacing for new I plan on cutting a coil out of my coil springs, because they are stock, I feel like they aren't allowing the struts to drop the truck to their full potential and its causing my front to sit higher than the rear. No Carolina squat for me even if it is an inch lol.

I also feel like im going to upgrade my leaf springs to a heavier duty style just to give it a little more support in the rear until I'm able to do a 4 link on it.

Right, but they have a kit that doesn't include rear struts and one that does so I was wondering if you kept the OE rear struts and if so do they bottom out on you? I will most likely get the 2" lift shackles in the rear also so that it is a 3" drop all around.

OK so you went with the kit struts for the front and Doetsch for the rear? I'm just trying to figure out if the struts from this kit are any good or if I should just buy lowering struts separately.

I just went with the doetsch tech for the rear shocks and put my coils from stock struts on the struts that came in the kit. Havent had a single issue with suspension up front with the struts provided in the kit.

Cool, just wondering on the ride quality of the struts is all, thanks.

No problem at all. Personally I like the way it handles. Feels like a car and im really looking forward to another winter of messing around in the snow with it before she gets turned into a serious project truck next summer.
