i picked up an 88 pathfinder and im lookin to do a sas on it, iwas just wondering about a couple things like if i should go with coils or leafs.
and what kind of axle i should use width wise and gearing.:confused0006:

Drivers side d60 and a 14 bolt in the rear or a d60 in the rear, coils will flex better but leafs arnt as compicated of a suspension, if u do go with leafs contact big country customs, they will be able to point u in the
right direction on what u need,

That's overkill. Dana 44 and stock rear are what I'm doing after VERY extensive research. Check my build thread if you're interested. The front will be well on it's way to done by mid Sept. so stat posted fro new stuff...

you can weel pretty hard on D44.

but don't keep the rear end.
You can get another comparably strong rear end for cheaper.

if your going to SAS your vehicle, you want 5.13 gears MIN and better yet 5.38:1.
the gears for the nissan rears are 500 bucks.
install kit is almost 300.
and min 300 for a crappy lunch box locker.

You can build a 9" for alot cheaper and it is stronger (however teh nissan rear is very strong)

or go with something evenc heaper like a 14Bolt.

the D60 would be great, but you have clearnace issues up front cause the oil pan shape.

If you do a D44 front, stay away from the EB D44's as teh pumpkin sits right were the oil pan is, and you will have interfearance issues.

either use a full width D44 or waggy front .
If you want to stay stock width, go with waggy front, and a narrow 9"

I agree with pathy... the only thing I would add is that the H233B has disks in many applications, if so it's a big bonus.
