UPDATE - The host suffered a "Catastrophic Hardware Failure" (*specifics not shared) on 01/13 and the "latest available" backup for the website and database were restored.  At this point they have been unable to recover any later versions of the database.

     We are going to give them another 72hrs to pull off a miracle and find something later than 05/21 before we fully move forward with normal forum operations.  Maybe we'll luck out, but to be perfectly honest, it's not looking good.

     It is still recommended that new members wait to register for the time being, as any new accounts created before our final decision on a path forward is made, may not exist once this is taken care of. This is also true for new topics, posts, status updates, profile & account changes, etc.

 

As always, we appreciate your patience as ask that you hold on just a little longer.

Proper balancing of tires (94 pathfinder)

Quick question, while I keep researching, I am wondering because I thought I read somewhere that if you take your pathfinder somewhere to be balanced, most places will no do it properly. What I am trying to figure out, does the pathfinder (mine or any other) require something special (maybe recommended from manufacturer) for a proper balancing? Thanks for any clarification.

I think you mean alignment. Balancing of tires is kind of a universal thing. While the alignment on the older (wd21) pathfinders can be somewhat cumbersome. The torsion bars have a slow memory and will need to be driven around the block after being on a lift before put on an alignment rack. Most shops are lazy and will just set the toe and let it go. You need to find a good shop that will set the camber/caster, and then the toe. Some of us here, myself included just do it ourselves with a level for the camber, and string/tape measures for the toe.

 

If you take it somewhere and they just do the quick alignment, it will eat the outside of the front tires like crazy. The last time I had a "good" shop align my truck it took them the better part of a day, and cost me 200 dollars. Granted it drove perfect and didn't wear the tires even with a suspension lift.

 

Search around on the net for diy alignment. It's not that hard. These trucks don't need it that perfect anyway. Just get the toe to 1/8" toe in or even 0 toe is fine (may wander a bit though)

Well, Firestone in this area has no issue with lifted Pathfinders either, but generally, you are correct.
