  1. I looked at a pair of add of overload add on springs on Summit that are slightly larger than the KYB shocks on my Pathfinder. The out side dimensions are just 3”. Should work as I am only looking for additional support when towing my 19’ travel trailer. BTW, only tow it short distance as 3.3L doesn’t do well over long distance. MTG
  2. On the regular rear shock mounts I would guess. Looked over the area and seems to be enough clearance. Have been researching different shock manufacturers to compare total lengths, compressed length and travel. MTG
  3. Are the upper or lower links not structural sound enough to withstand these?
  4. Thinking about putting a set of rear coil over shocks on my 2000 Pathfinder. Good idea? Bad idea and why? MTG
  5. Think about a marine tank on the roof rack. Takes up little room and can be gravity drained in no time. Mine works great and has extended my range.
  6. My ‘2000 has 150,000 plus miles on the odometer and runs great. I run 5W-30W Walmart full synthetic oil and NAPA Gold filters. Runs great, good mileage, no problems thus far.
  7. My spare fuel can is a 6 gallon marine fuel tank with the fuel line, with bulb, that I carry on my roof rack. Looking to add another springtime for extended range. How does all manage theirs? MTG
  8. When you get to a do it yourself car wash just spray liberally all over. Have been driving around Montana roads with salt and other with no real rust issues. Be sure to clean up over rear tire fenders and there is a spot just in front of rear tires that holds mud and dirt. Spray lots.
  9. NZ members I have a question. Not to take over this thread. Has your country opened up as yet. BTW, my R50 has 265/70R16 tires mounted on the 16” wheels. It did some rubbing of the front bumper and wheel well liners until I did some trimming. Now, nothing. We had a trip planned to NZ this past June but Covid kept us at home here in Montana. Hopefully will be able to travel to NZ in the future. Stay safe. MTG
  10. My 2000 R50 has a humming/droning noise that comes in around 45 mph. Have thoughts that it may be a rear wheel bearing. Will continue to watch this post. MTG
  11. Installed new Moog springs this AM. Checked universal joints, all good. Replaced fuel filter. No problems. This 2000 Pathfinder is so nice to work on as there is no rust, very little dirt and all bolts and nuts came off so easily. There is no visablevsag and the ride is nice and firm. Now, I am considering Airlift 1000 airbags. Watched a video and installation seems simple. Whereas I do very little towing I may wait some time to install. Thanks all for the input. MTG
  12. Has the stay at home order been lifted in NZ? Can you travel to where ever you want to keep from going stir crazy?
  13. Ordered the Moog rear springs in lieu of the airbags as I do very little towing with my Pathfinder. The only towing would be very short hauls. Do not care for airbags as had them on my 2000 F250 and were always a pain. The Moog springs should be sufficient. Thanks for the help. MTG
  14. I realize that this topic has been discussed to great ends but need to ask. My 2000 Pathfinder 4x4 has a bit of sag in the rear springs, not real bad but probably OEM springs. I have decided that I do not really want a lift but more load support. Having said this, what replacement rear springs will give me at most a 1/2” lift to bring it up and support a bit more load. I do plan to tow a 10’ utility trailer on occasion. Also, where to purchase at best price. Thanks for the input and patience. MTG
