I'll do the UCAs and front coils when I put those in. Likely do the rear shocks as well unless I get them before I bring my truck in

i did Camburg a-arms and coilovers up front , the kid has Camburg arms with Icon coilovers and rear shocks

Icons are big money. I'm mildy curious how much FOX Racing stuff is for trucks. I guess S-Werx support could be worth it

My current plan is Total Chaos UCAs and Radflo 2.0 extended travel coils and 2.0 rear shocks

$4K for front and rear Icons , Camburg arms , and the All Pro springs which are the wrong model year DOH!!! mine are Swayaway thru Camburg , i have Bilstiens 5152?? with 8pak Deavers mine was $3500ish when the dollar was .95cents . i could have went Fox with resi,s up front and rear for another $1000 , was not worth the expense for a daily driver

The Canadian distributor for Bilstien shocks is in Richmond and they will sell direct.

A buddy put air bags in the back of his Xterra and it took care of the bottoming out that always happens with any people [HTML_REMOVED] gear in the back.

As long as you don't mind adjusting air pressure for empty/full loads it seems to be a good solution.

I'm getting a HD leaf spring pack made w/ 2" lift over stock. Ordered up a set of Radflo 2.0 Rear Emulsion shocks for a 2" lift as well.

Ordering a set of Old Man Emu leaf packs from the states worked out to $464 CDN not including shipping to the boarder and all the hardware I needed to purchase as well. Couldn't wait or stomach the cost of an Alcan leaf pack either

Bags aren't the answer in this case and even if I didn't need to replace the stock springs I'd still go with a new leaf pack.

Here is why air bags wouldn't have worked :lol:

And why I waited to show the damage.

Xterra suck. The only more lesbian car is a Subaru.

Anyone else have the Nissan vq40de and 6spd? I expected it to be real bad on fuel. It's really reasonable so far.

Been driving my Xterra with a 6spd for 3.5 years and tracking the fuel economy on every fill up. Average of 13L/100km with a mix of city and hwy driving, probably about 50/50.

Way back from the old school days of NSMB…
