Hey guys I have some questions regarding leveling and so on.
9449 rear springs
5125 bilstein shocks
Kyb excel struts
OME HD #2928 front shocks
Kyb strut boots
OEM nissan strut bearings
Planning on 1" front strut spacer
And now some questions...
1. Do I need NEW OEM upper strut mounts? Or do most people reuse the old?
2. With the stiffer 9449 springs Im hoping for less sag in the long run and dont want to be raked. Im thinking of cutting a half coil or full coil off the 9449 springs so its sits truly level. So Im looking for 1.5-2" in the rear with as much towing capacity. Any thoughts on getting exactly 2" in the rear with the 9449?
My choices were to cut a FULL coil and not do the 1" spacer (but I think its worth the extra clearance and asthetics to add the spacer and go as high as possible in the rear while staying level when unloaded/lightly loaded) or to cut a half coil to match the OME HD front with a 1" spacer.....
I tow 50% of the time. Either a 5×8 5' high enclosed trailer or a 5×10 landscape/adventure trailer loaded down for camping. I also look forward to actually being able to use the rear hitch for a dirtbike carrier.
