No t-bar crank for you! :D Gotta love the simplicity of the last gen's design, but the 05's look oh so very sweet!

The older Frontiers had torsion bar suspensions..A common thing to do was to "crank" them up to get an extra inch or so lift.. (the torsion bar is the front spring)

T-Crank

Thank you for the reply. Do the '04's still have them? I was thinking about using a coil spring lift kit for 2" in the front. I'm not going to off road it (much) but I just want to make sure I'll have no troubles with the 31" Revo's I plan on buying prior to winter. Have a good one!

Prerunner Greg (PRG) has just come out with a 2" lift for the '05. His website doesn't have it yet prerunners.com, but here is a picture;

I e-mailed him last week [email protected] and he said everything is ready to go. The cost is only $250.00, If you have never heard of Prerunner Greg, check out Titantalk.com, I have only read rave reviews of him and his products.

Here are some more pics;

If you have any questions feel free to e-mail him he got back to me right away.

Cool can't wait to see the pictures. I was going to order mine this weekend but I just got laid off so i'll probably have to wait a bit. I am also interesed in how the install goes, and any pointers you may have afterwards.

You should know that there are 2 types of lift kits available. There are body lift kits and then there are suspension lift kits.

While suspension lifts give you a bit more wheel clearance it is specifically designed to allow more travel in the suspension, thus increasing off road capability. It is the body lifts that give you serious wheel clearance, which allows you to run bigger tires and rims. Body lift kits are much cheaper than suspension lift kits.

I suggest you visit the forums on www.4x4parts.com (also a great site to shop for Frontier goodies!). They have a couple threads that really detail the differences between the 2 lift kits.

As for me, I believe I will be going with the 3" suspension lift kit from Calmini and a 2" body lift kit from 4x4parts.com. Hope this info helps.
