NISSAN LEAF Need new rear suspension or leaf springs

So i have a xj and ive recently have been beating the hell out of the suspension. The leaf springs now are pretty much flat or maybe even a little bit negative. The rear shackles that are on it say it is a skyjacker 5.5 inch lift (jc55rs) the only problem is i dont know if that is right because the guy before me liked to mess with it alot. I need to know if there is a way you can tell exactly what

Only problem with your method is it does not work if you have trimmed fenders or modified flares or no flares. The Dirty Method Alright for those of you with cut-up fenders (who knows I may be there one day once my XJ becomes a trail rig) here is measuring your ride height the dirty method Checking Front Ride Height Measure front ride height with the vehicle unloaded (no luggage or passengers) and with the fuel tank full. Place the vehicle on a level surface and measure the veryical distance between the top of the axle tube (A) and the underside of the frame sill (B). Refer to Figure 1 for drivers side measurement and Figure 2 for passenger side measurement. Be sure each measurement is taken from the top of the tube and not from the axle or shift motor housings. With Standard or Soft Ride suspension vertical distance should be 17 cm (6-34 inches) plus or minus 13 mm (12 inch). With Heavy Duty suspension vertical distance should be 20 cm (7-34 inches) plus or minus 13 mm (12 inch). Checking rear Ride Height Measure rear ride height with the vehicle unloaded (no luggage or passengers) and with the fuel tank full. Place the vehicle on a level surface and measure the vertical distance between the top of the axle tube (C) and the underside of the frame sill (D) inboard of the jounce bumper (E). With Standard or Soft Ride suspension vertical distance should be 15 cm (6 inches) plus or minus 13 mm (12 inch). With Heavy Duty suspension vertical distance should be 18 cm (7 inches) plus or minus 13 mm (12 inch). note Fig. 3 refers to MJ suspension but is very similar to XJ.

NISSAN Nissan Rear Suspension Specialists HELP

I have started at least one thread about the HORRIBLE ride quality of my 2009 LE Crewcab 2X4. With 37K (out of basic warranty) the ride quality is getting even worse. Its horribly choppy even a little noticable on smooth surfaces. As though the truck is taking the bumps not the suspension. It has been quite bad since the day I drove it off the lot. I am wondering if I bought the wrong truck for my

I had an 08 4x4 CC LB SE and now have an 11 CC 4x4 LB SL. The 08 rode really smooth but I do have an annoying chop to the ride in the 11 model. Underside looks the same. Only difference I see is the wheeltire size. note on your door jam certification that the load is rated for your truck - and it isnt very much.

NISSAN OME suspension

ARB USA has been using my truck over the last 6 months or so to test fit their Australian made Navara products sold to the rest of the world. The first installation was of the OME suspension.

NISSAN need advice on tires please

my wife just ordered these rims for me for X-MAS...they are 16x8 with 0 offset.My truck is a 2x4 and Im gonna do the t-bar liftjust wondering if I go with a 2757016 instead of stock 265s 70s will they end up being the same height with the rim being 8.I dont know crap about tire sizes but I would like to buy some bfg ats or something with similiar look.If anyone knows a good place I could order from

when youre stuffed and turning the tire actually comes back farther in the fender well than stock. Even a 31 tire can rub if used on a rim with less backspacing and more trimming is required. A 32 tire on an aftermarket rim with or without lift will require trimming of not only plastic but also of the fender itself and the body seam underneath. An angle grinder works well for this work.

NISSAN Axle question

Hello All I change my tires every year from winter to summer and summer to winter and have always paid for it. I finally bought an car jack and it says that I need to lock into axle to jack the car. Where is the best spot to lock into where I wont damage it. Any answers would be appreciated.

There are 4 places that nissan recommends for jacking points 1) Front suspension cross-member. 2) rear suspension cross-member. 3) Pinch weld below the front door. 4) Pinch weld below the rear door. Personally I use the suspension cross member as a jack point then place jack stands under pinch weld locations. This allows me to jack up the entire frontrear of the car and change the tires on each side at once. note NEVER rely solely on the jack to support the car. Use jack stands for safety -

NISSAN JUKE FWD or AWDManual or CVT

Welcome (potentially) to the club. It is a very solid truck platform much like your old hard bodies with some refinement. The only quirks to look out for are a ticking from the engine like the old ka24s (4cyl motors) would do in the hard bodies when the timing chain guide would break especially noticeable at start up.

NISSAN Keep my Frontier or move to new F-150

Well Ive been itching to drive a new 09 F-150 and I did today. I love my Frontier and cant emphasize this enough and knock on wood my 08 now with 25K miles in 10 months has been bullet proof. All of the common problems like the fuel sending units Oil-Cooler that is sandwiched inside of the radiator taking out transmissions and the infamous chain guides have me scared to death about major out of pocket

Hey guys I aint giving up on my Frontier I just had to drive the new 150 over all of the hype commercials and seeing a couple good looking new ones around town. I probably wont be buying another truck anytime to soon but you never know. Personally I left impressed but not enough to buy one or replace my Frontier. To the guy who said look at a Tacoma I own three an 07 Reg Cab 4-Cyl a 07 Crew Short Box PreRunner & 05 of the same as the 07. Personally I find my 08 Crew Cab Frontiers interior more accommodating theres more storage I like the clam-shell box above the glove box for putting checks and other business related odds & ends. Also my truck got broken into in front of my house one night and the thieves never opened it were my ipod & digi camera were tucked safely away. Also I find my Frontier handles a load better and feels less squirly doing it. Un fortunately my Frontier has been back to the dealer twice this year for TPS sensor that went bad and the low tone horn burned out (my fault) from wheelin off-road in mud though. On another note Dodge has lost all respect for me their rig cant go past the warranty period without starting to fall apart around the motor and their new coil rear suspension went from contractor grade to home owner grade. Most contractors cant afford HD segment trucks so they work their 12 tons hard this new rear suspension setup on the Ram provides the least availible payload and towing of all of them. Ive driven a Silverado they ride like a Cadillac and are super smooth but I just dont like the look. To be honest the last 08.5 Titan Crew w 7ft box I drove was my favorite truck super comfortable tons of torque & power big cab and largest available box. Only down fall is nissan likely wont make it anymore when I need to buy again and the gas millage is absurd.

NISSAN general consensus...

what do yall prefer to lift our trucks... the 2.5 coil over fronts or billet spacers and for the rear ( since air shocks do not seem to be available...) add a leaf or blocks mines a 4x2 05 se btw

It is not expensive at all. All your doing is adding a few leafs to raise the rear about 2 or so not too sure. This is used by mild off roaders that need easy lift with some traction control that want to avoid significant body roll created by the blocks. Downside is that the leafs will flatten overtime and the rear end will sag. Otherwise another great option for some good ol off roading. noteS

the looks and handling of my versa. in all honesty its a pain trying to get back at danny with any word. but he did say that the coils are going to be around 1000 for the set. and i really havent heard anything else. im going to try to reach someone else in a different company who is willing to work with the 14 versa sedan. i came in contact with tanabe and they said theyre only looking for the nissan

NISSAN MAXIMA V CA33 01 I30 stallsturn off when on idle

01 I30 stallsturn off when on idle. the other day I went to the store and the car just turned at a stop light. I trioed turning it on and it would for a second then it would turn off. If I put my foot on the peddle and have it about 2000 rpms it will run fine. But as soon as I let go the rpms drop and the car shuts off. Lucky for me it was late and there werent alot of cops out. I had to drive home

rough Idling and stalling issues. Transmission shifting not smooth -this may indicate low level or dirty ATF andor filter but also a sign the transmission is on the way out. With the engine running and warm check the level and color of the ATF fluid. A good ATF fluid is pinkish red. If the fluid is dark andor has burnt smell it must be replaced. If the level is low just add fluid (Recommended is nissan

NISSAN PRG v.s. Rough Country leveling kits...

Okay I searched the archives but didnt find what I was looking for so here it is... I have noticed many folks on here have both the PRG and RC leveling kits on their rigs. I am looking at purchasing one but cant decide. I have a 2011 KC 4x4 and it is currently bone stock. Any help is greatly appreciated

I was originally between this nissan Leveling suspension Lift Kit or this PRG Products I would be getting camber bolts as well. Just wanted to see what feelings were regarding the different brands and the quality their products as well as corrosion being a major concern. Being from PA where our vehicles succumb to rot before anything else. I like ADFs prices but they dont give much description about

NISSAN JUKE Tein street basis coilovers

First set of Tein Street Basis coilovers in America. Custom revalved from JDM spec. First impressions... Ride quality is very good tighter than stock but not harsh. Turn in response is crisp and the adhesion limits are significantly higher. Brake and acceleration pitch movement is greatly reduced no more rocking boat motion. Now with the pictures I will get car pictures when the sun comes back out.

with a 245 tire. Only warning is that if you have stock suspension dont go jumping things. You might end up with some contact. Most cars only use 2-3 inches of compression travel so its not a problem for normal road driving. The problem with the juke is the front fender liners are very tight despite the huge openings. The rear has so much room. I think 10.5 wide with a 35 would still fit. Also note

NISSAN MAXIMA Newbie to Forum but not to Maxima

Just came across the forums this week what a great resource I am in the market for a used car and have begun looking at Maximas again. I used to have a 91 SE and I knew about the timing belt issue. I am now looking at a couple one a 99 SE and another 01. What things must I be on the lookout for or plan on replacing very early on in ownership Also what were the differences in the 95-99 and the 00-04

I series over the Maximas Differences between the Maxima and I were 100% aesthetic. Different front and rear fascia and different trim inside and out. Both can be found with auto or manual transmissions and in luxury or sport trim. It just comes down to which one you think looks best. One reason to consider purchasing an I over a Maxima though is for Infiniti service. While there are some great nissan

NISSAN Jack Stand Recommendations

What kind of jack stands are yall using To meet the needs of Frontier I figure I need a stand that will rise to at least 14-12 to 15 for tire rotations. My main concern is where to place the stand given that Ill be using the factory jack to raise the truck (i.e. ya cant put the stand at the spot where the jack shoulders the load). Is the rear axle tube able to support the rear (The jack fits under

steel. Mine have a completely solid base heavy but very stable (got em from Northern years ago). Place the jack under the front crossmember to raise the front or under the rear diff housing on the rear. Jack stands should go on the frame not on the suspension members or axle tubes this gives a more stable setup as youre not concerned about the suspension still being live against the stands. note
