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 LEAF Rear leaf spring slip

I have a 97 F150 and was curious as to why the top rear leafs have slipped out of alignment from the other leafs in the pack. Anybody else have anything similar let me know.

at a mere 5000 miles.I took it in and they ordered me a new set of springs ( I am guessing the tsb says replace both sides).that was the good news.time for the bad news at 20000 miles I noticed that the drivers side is sliding out again.I have yet to take it abck to the dealer. I have never exceeded the recomended payload either ( I have came pretty close to it quite a few times) An interesting note

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. This suspension gave the Frontier a little over 2 lift in the front and about a 2 12 lift in the rear. It has a great ride and better control than the NISMO suspension that it replaced.

Some people brought up some interesting points about using a stock suspension and just going with a body lift. When

I dont have any personal experience with Rustys kits but have seen enough negative posts about their products and Cust Service to avoid using them. Do some research and go with what you think is best. Good luck On a side note

NISSAN LEAF Swapping the leaf spring shackles

I heard that swapping the leaf spring shackles on the front axle will do wonders for the ride. Any comments

now being at the front the axle will move back when the suspension compresses not forward like it dose stock. With the axle moving back you run the chance of the drive shaft not having enough compression. If the drive shaft bottoms out you could bust your T-case. Also depending on the condition of your springs and shocks you may experience more brake dive when you get on the brakes. P.S. also note

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.

Im trying to decide whether its worth it to spring for the AWD. Is it a full time all wheel 4 wheel drive I cant quite tell from the description.

NISSAN why are people trying to make a versa fast

Seriously flame me if you want I dont care but I am seriously asking whether it pisses you off or not.

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

NISSAN Tanabe coilovers

So I found some and they are 1500.00 what do you guys think about that price

(it does on the Mini whose stock springs are linear) and better performance when pushed hard. Lastly shock dampening and stroke need to matched to the spring characteristics. An aftermarkeret spring thats stiffer and shorter than stock could overpower a stock shock and take it out of its normal performance range. This is typically exhibited by excessive bouncing or overshoot going over a bump. (note

NISSAN From a stop spinning the tires on a wet road

I decided to do a burnout in my truck on wet pavement for fun and a little excitement for my girl. This is not the first time When I drop the hammer from a dead stop on wet pavement my truck goes into a fish tail. Its not the first time and I expect my truck to do a fish tail. I was wondering if both rear tires are spinning at the same time to cause the fish tail or just one wheel. Ive done this before

I have had both lit up on a wet road and got it to fishtail some but then other times I have had only one lite up and it still fish tailed. I think it might have something to do with the stock long trails. They are not a uniform tread pattern. This might cause it to act a little like a screw and cause the rear to go either left or right depending on which way it starting slipping first. Side note
