Got 1 side done today...waiting on new coilovers so just using my radflos for now...fairly painless liberal use of anti seize in the past is paying off...
Thanks to all again..now hurry nisstec with my ts mkii's...

Oh...and rockauto is great for shipping quick and getting stuff in 2 days...but was missing balljoints for my ucs's...ImageImage

Nice. Any thoughts for what to do about fender flares / tire coverage?

I'm not entirely sure yet but some type of flexible liner.
My inspection is good until July so I've got time to figure it out thankfully.

When did you move to MA?

Husky Liners makes "Long John Mud Flaps." I've actually debated running these on my X.

Got my alignment done,just waiting on new coilovers to swap in.
Using the new nisstec mkii's. The spring is a bit higher at 650 but should be ok.
Drives pretty good I'll have to say right now just using the worn out rad flos., I put new hubs in while I had it apart too . I was getting a humming from 1 of them so that helped .

Oh..put 2 inch spacers in the back too. They don't match the front perfectly but close.

I’ve used the ‘long Johns’ and they helped me pass inspection in mass.

Got them installed before the rain..very big improvement. Mostly I think because they are new and a little heavier spring.

Thanks man. Ride is good on road, it all needs a good shakedown run.

Tony, are those designed and manufactured by Nisstec or did they have a third-party make them? What's the spring rate?

Hi Mike.
3rd party. Not sure from where but out of the country.
650 springs for titan swap are the only option. Seems to ride good, a little stiff.
