Specs look good, it would be nice if they gave a little more than 2" though.

Anyone tried them???
They have a heavy duty option too which is supposed to add a bit more then 2" with no load on the rear end but I would think a 1-2" in shackle with these wouldn't have the issues that our stock springs do. I'm considering these if I ever get around to lifting my truck, I doubt anyone has tried them as they haven't been out long at all.

my only problem with the look of these is how the lower 3 leafs aren't curved with the rest of the leaf pack, looks like this would be a good snag point out in the brush. i wouldn't want to pull out of the brush and end up dragging half of it with me lol. good price though. if you were looking for more lift you could build your own leaf pack like andy and a couple people have http://www.clubfrontier.org/forums/f23/diy-rebuilt-leaf-springs-38250/ you can get 4 in with this.

not sure why that link isn't working but the thread is called DIY - Rebuilt Leaf Springs. and its posted by stevet47

Those are the OME dakar packs. ive been looking into getting them. Sweep's truck was the trial truck for them as i understand it. Unless something else comes alongthis is the uption i'm going with. They dont lower your load capability like other packs. I want something i can load my truck up w/ all my gear and bomb around the fast trails comfortably then crawl through the rocky stuff good too. these seem to be the best fit. The bottom 3 helper springs wont look so goofy w/ a load on them. stock leafs have just one heavier bottom leaf in the same spot. To me it seems like they are similar to OEM just with more arch and lift

This is what I was thinking I wouldn't want to lose the overload spring because my truck is a truck first but these look like they would let you keep the utility and perform better then the stockers all around.

why pay 350 plus shipping when you can pay 50-100 for 4" instead of 2"
Because There is much more quality in the $350 pack and I have no desire to go up 4 inches in the rear I'm looking to do 2.5 - 3 up front and 1.5 - 2 in the rear. It's going to be awhile before I'm able to lift my truck anyway and then I need to convince the wife.:laugh:

Check out post #406 on this thread. My new vehicle: 2005 Nissan Frontier - Page 41 - Expedition Portal Forum

I think these are what I'm going to get when I have the money.
They look sweet but probably overkill I wander if they have a medium duty version of them got a link?

What did you use for your leaf packs when you did them? I know I read it but...
x stock leafs.

sorry but quality isnt much different. 20 bucks says you couldnt tell the difference of my pack or theres if they were the same height.

and you can go only 2-2.3-2.5-3.4
i built my own leaf pack, so i can do as much or as little lift as possible.

I also want to keep my stock leaf pack intact incase I decide to go back to stock so I would have to get and Xtera pack as well as a second Frontier pack to do so which would bring the cost up. Then I would have to do all the work getting a custom pack together and figuring out the right set up for my desired ride height, load capacity, ride quality, and articulation call me lazy I guess.
I was wondering about the heights as some places say 0-2.5 for coilovers and others say 0-3 still not sure what the best option is there either.

Don't the Xterra guys have the same problem with the stock leaves flattening out and sagging after a while?

To some one specifically using the medium duty pack? No. But I would imagine the only difference between the medium and heavy is how much arch they have. Since 4x4parts says if you use the HD springs without a lot of weight in the bed you will get a lot more then 2" lift.

Because not everybody is a size queen? I kid, I kid.
