Borowed from my nissan board.
This is good info for anybody working on pathfinders. Most of it will apply to hardbody's as well
Suspension Lifts, there are only a few companies that offer true suspension lifts for 86-95 pathy's:

Calmini offers a complete 3" suspension lift:

Trailmaster offers a 4" lift:

Automotive Customizers offer a wide variety of lifts for 86-04 pathy's:

Rancho, donít know if it still available, but at Kragen they still offer it:

Prado lifts have a new system that will be out for those R50 owners:

UCAís for those who prefer a cheaper alternative, here is a link. Iím not going to go into detail about coil springs cause thatís what the garage tech section is for:

Superlift/Rough Country:
http://www.rockymountainsusp.com/nissan_early.htm (http://www.rockymountainsusp.com/nissan_early.htm) Call to get a price on the UCAís alone, unless you want shocks. Make sure you said it is for the hardbody, because they will not warrant the UCAís

Automotive Customizers:
http://www.4x4parts.com/public_html/shop/i...db8e3bdc448e93e (http://www.4x4parts.com/public_html/shop/index.php3?page=shop/browse&category_id=43f21050fc0924a1b289f92b1eb99eb9&ps_session=c4dc20e2042fe371adb8e3bdc448e93e) again just call for quote on UCAís 88 will not recommend this set of UCAís, as well as many other memebers. Again just to inform.

Exhaust systems, while there may be a wide variety of tastes and styles due to the fact that proper sizing does matter for h/p and torque gains, but here is what has been recommended so far.

Mufflers:
http://store.summitracing.com/egnsearch.as...711&NeXID=5 (http://store.summitracing.com/egnsearch.asp?N=700+4294923429+115+4294922711&NeXID=5) Iím gonna recommend Summit Racing, just because of the sheer amount of different type of mufflers available. Just remember to use 2.5 or 2.25 inch exhaust sizes.

Good info Pathy, lotsa links.

IMHO, 4x4parts.com (Automotive Customizers) is the one-stop nissan shop. I got everything for my truck from there, and the support and info in the forums is second to none. You have separate links for lockers, snorkels, etc, but AC sells it all.

01-04-2008, 08:45 AM
sorry bud, i don't promote AC. I've delt with them, lots of my friends delt with them, and frankly, they can kiss my ass.

the last thing i bought from them was cralwer gears and they sent it to the wrong address 3 times. The ball joint spacers they promote will detroy your UCA's as well.

They are good for somethigns, but if you wnat REAL nissan tech the VERY Best site is NPORA.

baluch
01-04-2008, 01:20 PM
That sucks you had a bad experience with them, I've had nothing but good ones. I'd never use the ball joint spacers, strikes me as a weak point.

Sure, NPORA might be good... If you drive a Pathy, since that's all they cater to.
