The EASIEST and most TROUBLE FREE R51 Pathfinder lift??

Postby TRUTH ABSOLUTE » Tue Jan 02, 2024 5:34 am

I just bought a 2011 Nissan Pathfinder Le with 83000 miles on it.
I have previously owned a 1998 Pathfinder and a 2002 Pathfinder 5-speed.
I have never lifted a vehicle before.
I would like to raise my pathfinder about 2 inches and refresh the suspension wherever needed.
I see a lot of posts about people having trouble with rear wheel alignment after doing a lift. It is making me scared to pull the trigger on anything.
I'm considering the Dobson's 2-in lift kit that consists of just new front and rear shocks and springs.
Can someone please give me advice on how to make my lift the most trouble free?
Thanks!!

Welcome.
83K it's a baby.

Not that I had to lift mine, but the lower rear controls arms have to be in good order.

Check that the alignment bolts are not seized for any alignment needs (front and rear). I'm certain that you will need these to be in good order for any lift.

If this is a southern vehicle it may not be an issue and you have reasonable miles!

I'm not sure what needs to be performed on a 2" lift, as the suspension travel on these are short.
I've seen 1-1.5" lift kits on Ebay/Amazon for $100, but this may not meet your needs.

good luck!
