Started with a 2016 P4X, 20k Miles, OEM Suspension.

FRONT:
2.0" In-Coil Spacer (advertised as no coil-bucket contact)
NISSTEC supplied Cam Bolts

REAR:
Single Add-A-Leaf
2.5 Degree Angle Shim
Retained Overload Spring in leaf stack
NO Aftermarket Blocks/Shackles

OPINION:
It looks and rides like it should have from the factory.
Rear rides better than OEM.
One bridge I travel across daily made the rear end rise and fall harshly.
Today the headlights held steady.

Attached snip of spreadsheet numbers "pre / post lift" and an image of the alignment spec.
Was hoping for more narrow toe-in, but it's within spec.

There are so many options out there. From cheap to radical. The only thing I can suggest is to research, research, research. Then do some more research.
Then build what you want for your needs.

For me, and after visiting their shop, NISSTEC had the right solution for my plans. I was also impressed with their tech & customer support before and after the purchase.

I've been thinking of doing the same. Just not sure about the blocks, shackles or aal. When you say the ride is better and as it should be, is it stiffer? Mine is 2017 SV CC 4x4. Im assuming suspension wise same as pro4x except for shocks.

Ride is better from the perspective of not squishy/spongey. Firmer, yes. But not harsh. It rides more "solid". If you've ever driven a 1/2 ton pickup empty, then that is how my Frontier road BEFORE the lift. After install, it rides like a 1/2 ton pick up with weight in the bed, but not max-loaded/over-loaded or like a 3/4 or 1-ton. It's just better. I would do it again if just for the rear ride improvement only. Some like harsh, some like soft, it's the middle where it becomes personal and subjective.

I have about $375 in the install (including alignment) and about 8 hours labor, so for me it was money well spent.
