  1. I had some of the ricochet bushings off eBay for ~6 months and just had to replace them with the dormans. My rack was wiggling and squeaking quite a bit even with the bolts torqued down. Compared to the doorman's the material is a lot thinner, too thin to hold the rack securely in my case. Would not recommend.
  2. According to the fsm there shouldn't be any end play. Quite possible they just loosened up a little, I'd just snug them down.
  3. That would be awesome! I'm in Tucson but my lady's family is in Phoenix so we're up there pretty regularly. I'll keep an eye out for a 33 spline lsd and be in touch!
  4. Awesome this is what I was looking for. Sounds like my chances of finding one are slim tho Looks like 33 splines in the newer r50s at least, thanks for catching that, got my numbers mixed up I'll keep checking the u pull it's but sounds like I'll end up with an r50 one. I'd like to regear and get a lokka for the front but that's not in the cards anytime soon.
  5. Yeah I've seen that. Forgot to mention I don't wanna do that right now, maybe down the road if I end up with a weak one. Thanks for the suggestion tho!
  6. I've been looking for a lsd in the junkyard lately but haven't had much luck. I'd like an xterra one with the tighter clutch pack but haven't found any with the 4.3 in it. From what I can gather this is an uncommon ratio for the xterra. So has anyone found a 4.363 in a frontier or xterra? Or should I just put in one of the newer looser pathfinder ones and be grateful its not an open diff anymore. Seems like options are limited with the 31 splines and this ratio. Not interested in messing with the front diff right now so regearing is out and too broke for a locker.
  7. Sounds like you were tapped into the dimmer switch when you were getting 5 volts, I'm pretty sure it uses the ground. Most of the switches and stock head unit are hooked up to it. I'm using one of those usb cigarette lighter voltmeter things and really like it. Lot easier to install than a hard wired one lol.
  8. I replaced my dash and climate control bulbs with these https://www.superbrightleds.com/moreinfo/led-vehicle-replacement-bulbs/74-led-bulb-3-smd-led-miniature-wedge-retrofit-car/228/ Think I went with the warm color. Looks and works great. Big improvement over stock, at least in the gauges. This thread has some good info on the subject https://forums.nicoclub.com/topic563777.html
  9. I just replaced my passenger mirror the other day. If it's a power mirror you will have to remove the door panel to get to the electrical connectors. Not sure otherwise. The procedure is in the FSM (which calls for removing the door panel). Hope this helps!
  10. This is probably a long shot but I really need a fan shroud now that summer's in full force. No luck in any local junkyards and can't afford a new one. For a 2001 with the VQ35. Thanks in advance!
  11. Looking good! Any chance the panhard bar drop bracket will be available by itself?
  12. Got a good flex pic last weekend, love this rig for camping!
  13. Can you post a link for these? I'm starting to work on some belly armor and these look perfect. Thanks!
  14. Cool that was my undertaking but couldn't find a definitive answer. Thanks for clearing that up! I'll be ordering land rover springs and poly bushings next week, then the rear should be good for a while.
