So your hear to find out what the big solution is to my problem eh? Well here you guys go!
I have been in contact with a fellow Nissan enthusiast down in the state of Louisiana.
To show you guys how big of a enthusiast he is, here is his 2010 Frontier on 38s (yes you heard me correctly):
What a Beauty
Any who, ive been picking his brain about his front suspension setup and he told me he recently upgraded to the CJD Racing Steering Knuckles that ive wanted to buy for months. Here they are:
As you can see, the knuckles allow for maximum clearance for his steering and shock components. Thus the reason most people go after them. Did I also mention that the knuckles can be used on our factory 16x7s
The designer of the knuckles built them around our factory wheel so they would work for those who didnt want to throw cash at a new wheel and tire setup. The drawback to these knuckles is they are $1350 before shipping and tax. At the end of the day, you pay for what you get and these are nothing but the highest of quality steering knuckles.
So how does this help me?
Well it just so happens that the guy in Louisiana is getting rid of his old fab tech steering knuckles and hit me up to buy them.
I wasted no time in accepting that offer
I paid $150 for his fab tech knuckles and they will be in my possession sometime next week fingers crossed.
So now you ask, why are you getting the fab tech knuckles? Why not go with CJD?
Money is the biggest reason for me but also, the fabtech knuckles work with 16x8s with a 1.5 inch wheel spacer. YAY.
To prove that they work on 16s, here is the guys truck on 33s on 16x7s with the fabtech steering knuckles.
Its not the best picture but it proves that they work on 16s.
I will say though that to run the fab tech spindles, you need their custom tie rod. the factory tie rods do not fit due to them curving.
Which leads to another issue, I am titan swapping so how do i run these shortened tie rods from fabtech?
Once again, my cajun friend comes to the rescue
He also has a pair of PRG tie rod extensions that he will ship me along with the knuckles for no extra charge. BIG THUMBS UP TO HIM.
