Really new..I have an 05' XE
Would like to lift it about 3 inches..Is that cool? how...Does it void the warranty? Will it look silly - How much does it cost? Where do I get the stuff?

suspension lift

yeah, I'd be interested too. My last two trucks I could crank the t-bars for the desired height. I will pick up my new Frontier c/c this week and will begin to snoop around the front looking for ways to raise the front in an effort to level the body. I suspect someone makes a kit but I just can't seem to find it.

That's not entirely true. If something goes wrong with any vehicle the manufacturer actually has to prove the aftermarket parts did the damage, its the Magnussen Warranty Act. For example,if you just so happen to have a 3" lift and you start to get electrical problems the manufacturer has to repair the problem unless they can prove the problem was caused by the lift (very unlikely). Aslong as you have a warranty and it covers that certain problem. A lot of people actaully don't know about this and get screwed all the time!

You should be able to lift the truck but if you have any drivetrain problems in the future the manufacturer probably won't fix it!

okay he is right, it wont void your entire warrenty, what i meant was anything you do to your truck will void that part from warrenty. my friend couldnt even change the size of the tires on his car with out voiding part of the drive terrain. so if you change the shocks, they wont fix anything in that area. thats what i meant, sorry for hte confusion.

you should stil be able to use it, i think it just comes with like 2 more spacers and 2 more bolts. to cover the extra lenght of the crew cab. other wise nothing should be different and you should be able to use it. you will just have a couple spare parts.

i found that calmini has a 2.5" lift that sells for $225. they have two choices. one is spacers in the front and blocks in the back or the other is spacers in front and shackles in the back. this is the cheapest i found so far. every other lift is $200 for just the spacers and another $100 for the blocks. for that much money at calmini you can buy the spacers,blocks, and shackles.

There are a few people on Cardomain.com that have a 2 1/2 inch lift with bigger tires.
I never would have thought it would have looked that much different, but it actually looks really nice
I think the truck im talking about is a red 2005 from oregon.

I just found this while searching for lifts. www.4x4parts.com


Suspension:Complete Suspension Packages:Frontier:2005-2006 Frontier Suspension Packages
Frontier Suspension Package
Shackles will provide 1.5" of lift over stock. Comes with hardware. Extremely stout! Black Hammered finish. Longer rear shocks included. Bushings not included. Minor adjustments to the length of the rear break lines and ABS lines is recommended. These coils replace your factory coils. Made to work with stock or after-market shocks with the same amount of travel. Made of high quality steel using cold-wound process which virtually reduces settling or sagging. Provides improved support for vehicles equipped with a winch or heavy bumper. Will not require removal of upper ball joint to install. Requires coil compressor for installation. Unlike spacers, these coils will NOT cause contact of upper a-arm with upper coil bucket. Unlike spacers, these coils compress so that wheel travel is not lost by the amount of lift. Coils keep the factory CV angles and steering components within factory design parameters. Powder coated black for longevity. Have not been tested with spacers so they are not recommened for use with spacers. Can be used with drop down design suspension lift for additional lift. Spring rate is increased marginally which keeps the ride quality comfortable. Suspension lift includes two front coils and two rear shackles. This suspension lift will level your Frontier. Amount of front lift will be limited depending on which coil over shock you are using. Different models have different shocks so degree of lift may vary. Includes Rancho RS5000 Rear Shocks.
Price - $275.00
