Lift help???

Postby pyro4ik » Mon Aug 23, 2021 12:17 pm

2008 LE V8 with over 200k miles needed new rear shocks and front coils/struts, so I decided why not add a cheap lift. I used rancho rear spacers (+1.75") and 2.5" front spacers.

Since the rear was already an inch higher than the front I figured the result would be fairly level, but the front is WAY higher than the back now, like 2.5" higher in the front. Rear coils were doing great beforehand BTW so didn't replace.

Did i fck it up, miscalculate, does the front need to settle, or what? Any help is much appreciated, thx.

So i'm going to remove the 2.5" front spacers. Should i swap them for 1" spacers or just go w/o spacers all together up front???

when i lifted mine, i did 50mm front and rear.

i used a puck-style front kit for the same model year Frontier, and a rear spring-seat spacer for an Armada.

all the R51 specific kits had more front lift than rear, to "level" it, but i wanted to keep the slight rake, and it came out nicely.

i wouldnt go over 2" in the front with stock control arms.
