Pathfinder has a kit to lift it. It consists of longer shackles and torsion bar adjustments. It only lifts about 3 to 4 inches. It looks great. The other day, another Fronty parked in front of me and it was about 3 or 4 inches taller than mine. Does anyone know if there is a similiar shackle and torsion bar method to lift the Fronty. Oh, it wasn't bigger tires, I looked.

4" of lift! 8O with a torsion bar adjustment and shackles sounds outreageous! You will likely at most get 2" with that mod. If you need or want more lift, you will have to go with a supension lift (SL) or a body lift (BL).

PLease share... I want to lift mine just a little as well 1-3 inches.

What did you find?
The Calmini site has the shackles for 50 bucks.
Then, do the t bar adjust. I read else where on this site that it takes about 12 turns.


So are you saying that i install the rear shackels and turn the Torsion bar up front to gain 1-3 inches? Has anyone actually done this? If so a detailed write up and PICS would be awesome?

The lift all depends on how high the front is from the factory. I got 2" easy, but if you see old pictures of my truck the front was a good 2"+ lower in the front than the rear. I just cranked the torson bars and fixed that.

I read else where on this site that it takes about 12 turns.
There is no set number of truns to do crank them. It all depends on how close you get the the bump stop.

If so a detailed write up and PICS would be awesome?

So...

For a hundred bucks... 2 sets of Calmini shackles @ $50 each, and the torsion bar adjustment, and a couple hours of labor I can get 2 or so inches of lift. That's pretty cheap and easy. Does the torsion bar adjustment have any long term effects on suspension longevity? Anybody gone this route? Pleased? Caveats? Curious, as this seems like a no brainer if one wants a bit more clearance.
