I've heard bad things about calmini. I know they make a set of balljoint spacers that have a tendency to grenade.

Two major IFS lift kits that everyone installs are OME and AC lifts. OME is ~1.5" and the AC is ~3". Otherwise you can do the generic ZJ coils in the rear and crank tbars in the front.

Go do research on NPORA. There are pages of information on this shit [cheers]

Don't know about BC dealers however. I know there are a couple of OME dealers.

Not sure about any other companies for lifts, but I bought my gears through national and they were calmini... Customer service is terrible and I will not buy from them again, I called there customer service about vibrations and 4wheel drive and they told me that my t case was fucked and had attitude on the phone every time I called about parts, and the whole vibration problem was just bearings, they said either ujoints or fucked shafts

The calming product is good. Their customer service is not so good. However I do plan on buying their kit for my daily driver

garbage ... and there customer service is absolutly horrible ...

they left us hanging for month's on a lift kit for a customer after taking payment and when i asked if they could do anything for us for the wait i basicly got told to deal with it ....

i would not recommend them to anyone ...

For a grand you should be able to find someone local to do a sas with a toy front axle.

If you want bolt-on shit for Nissans, 4x4parts.com is your one-stop shop. Good service, and an incredibly knowledgeable forum. When shipping parts from the US, avoid UPS like the plague, their brokerage fees are retarded.

Has anyone used the Calmini UCAs? Any thoughts about them? I've heard mixed reviews about them, from customers, and NPORA.

I believe Rough Country and Trail Master have lift kits available for 87-92.5 models, but if you're like me, and have a 94/95 pathy, you're pretty well SOL. Im still inquiring about the Calmini Lift kit, but like i said in my previous post, mixed reviews is what I've gotten from that.

if i'm not mistaken, the kits will work on ALL of teh WD 21's
the only difference suspension wise is the pitman arm (larger diamter shaft on teh steering box) and they have a different spline count on the front CV shafts

This is a good tidbit to know.. I've been SEARCHING all over the map trying to figure out if it would work. I couldn't figure out what the actual difference was between the two.
