  1. Drill out to 1/2” Sent from my Pathfinder
  2. No sleeve. Use with bushing only Sent from my Pathfinder
  3. I tried to reach out to jovany to come on the site to clear any misinformation and he has been slow to react and probably uninterested. He did tell me his attempts to work with Ironman were before he made the video. He also mentioned Ironman wanted to give him partial refund for the springs. At this point he looks like even bigger liar with his claims of bad customer support. With that said, having worked on my pathfinder’s suspension a bunch, I can say something is wrong with those springs but I guess we’ll never really know. [mention]RainGoat [/mention] I gave up social media nearly a decade ago. I haven’t looked back since. The amount of crap on there makes everyone stupid. Sent from my Pathfinder
  4. I doubt they’ve bought an r50 as a daily. Their only offerings currently are springs for front and rear. At $200 for a pair of springs, I doubt they will be creating anything more for our platform. The market for r50s is extremely small and the majority of owners can’t afford that price point. I think them buying this car is simply to test if their springs are defective. If ARB is able to ramp up production for their products, then this company will be obsolete in the r50 world.

  5. Turned out great! I recommend using gaia on the HU around town before getting out on a trail. My kenwood also has CarPlay but the app on the HU is not very useful. I added an 8” samsung tablet strictly for nav. Sent from my Pathfinder
  6. Good for them. Now they’ll know if their r50 springs are defective or not. Of course if they are, I doubt we’ll know about it. Sent from my Pathfinder
  7. That would be great if you could get measurements. The way I see it, the coils from the video are defective. Hopefully you get a pair that are consistent with their specs. Sent from my Pathfinder
  8. Cancel. Their support seems to be lacking. Sent from my Pathfinder
  9. Thanks for the info RainGoat. We are going to try to cut one today out of 3/16 aluminum. The deflector has to be custom due to the rack length. I’ll get some more pics for you guys later today Sent from my Pathfinder
  10. If your axle is going in at a very slight angle, that is enough to keep the shaft from sticking out far enough for snap ring. I’d pull it out and turn the steering away from the side you’re working on. Try again to seat the splines then give it a firm push. Sent from my Pathfinder
  11. New roof rack is finally on. Some small stuff is still needed but here’s a pic of how it sits. I am extremely happy with how it turned out. Of course this wasn’t possible without [mention]hawairish [/mention] A big thanks to him for always willing to help in any way he can. He was behind the design and fabrication of the brackets that hold this thing together. At 72lbs, it isn’t the lightest but will out perform almost any off the shelf roof rack. We’ll continue the build tomorrow so I’ll have more pics then. Sent from my Pathfinder
  12. That is actually the new style. The struts you have are the old style. Yours technically have more travel than new ones. Sent from my Pathfinder
  13. Ouch. That really sucks. Let’s see a pic of the damage Sent from my Pathfinder
  14. Man, that's too bad. For my setup, I worked on it for about 2-3 weeks so I knew it was done right. Hopefully you only have to make minor adjustments and not redo everything. You should post a pic of that roof rack...looks real "safari" so far.
