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.

Lifting a 99 SE


Recommended Posts

Hey all,


I just recently purchased a 99 Pathfinder SE, can someone please tell me what options I have for lifting this bad boy. All I've seen is the Old Man EMU kit...any suggestions??

There is a few threads about this.





Plus a bunch of others. But anyway, the big question is: how big do you want to go? The most common lift heights are 1", 2", 4", and 6". There is also the question of budget, which determines factors like coils vs. spacers. Another important factor is the condition of the stock suspension; if it's totally worn out and needs replacing anyway then spacers aren't the way to go.

Thanks for the response, I called nisstec lifts and they basically told me that there isnt really a lift kit for the 99 SE, and that the half inch lift is the only route i could go. I thought to myself that cannot be true. I dont want to do anything crazy, i just want a nice little 2 or 4 inch lift that i can head up to the colorado mountains and have some fun.

Yup, they're definitely wrong about that, lol. If you want 4" (or really anything from 2" to 12" depending on how much you want) you can build an SFD following these instructions:




For 2 inches, you can do a coil lift from 4x4parts.com (commonly called the AC lift) or a spacer lift, which can be found on eBay and for sale by a forum member (fleurys) at sfcreation.com. I have the lift from sfcreation.com and it has been great.
