  1. I don’t think there is a preferred brand. Any ball joint will be fine.
  2. You can easily do the job with the 2-piece compressors.
  3. Kyb struts with kyb top hat and bearings are perfect. Moog spring are also good and you will not experience any issues with topping out.
  4. Very nice write up and investigating. It's refreshing to see a post from a Pathfinder enthusiast. These lift questions from users that can't afford a 4runner are getting old.
  5. Probably these: https://www.4x4parts.com/i-18981165-pathfinder-front-lift-coils.html
  6. Hey guys, I am putting together a group buy for the Falcon bumper bar for the R50. Then order will be delivered to Southern California or Western Arizona. This bumper is not sold in the US and will be shipped directly from the manufacturer in Thailand. We already have 2 serious buyers and are looking to get a total of 5 buyers. Other bumpers are also available (see link). Price for bumpers is around $1120-30 USD. Shipping and duty will be extra (dependent on total buyers). Manufacturing time is around 4 weeks with 6-8 week delivery time. https://www.mcc4x4.co.nz/part-finder/nissan/pathfinder-r50/
  7. I’m pretty sure your struts are factory length for pre-facelift r50s (Someone correct me if wrong). They are the same length as the OME struts which are only 0.75” (19mm) longer than facelift r50s. Your struts do not have a 35mm extension. They would bind without a spacer if they were 35mm longer. You are misinformed. So going back to my original suggestion, the axles will work with a one in spacer.
  8. The struts you have seem to be factory length for 96-99 according to their catalog, so those axles should work with one inch spacers.
  9. What’s the extended shaft length?
  10. Do you have stiffer springs or extended struts also?
  11. One inch sfd isn’t worth it. Just get the extended cv axles. https://www.rockauto.com/en/parts/trakmotive,NI8185XTT,cv+axle,2288
  12. It should be included in the kit you purchased. The OE mount has the spacer integrated, but the kyb doesn't so it is necessary for your '02. I believe early model r50s had different struts and the spacer wasn't needed as the shaft was tapered almost to the threads.
  13. Very clean ride. #R50OBSEEEEEESED
  14. Disregard. I found it. This forum is not helpful at all.
  15. Hey guys looking for some bullshiiiiiet around here
  16. I’ve bought a couple of things from Fleury and he makes good quality stuff. His missing link is robust.
  17. Truthfully, 90-95% of Pathfinder owners are not the target market. That’s the reason why there isn’t a market for stuff like this. Most Pathfinder/Nissan owners would own a Toyota or Jeep if they could afford it. Very few people are actual Nissan fans and simply buy because they’re cheap or couldn’t find something else. Buying roof rack that is 1/4 of the value of a car may not even be a smart decision in the long run. Still, I’m sure the amount of work OP has put in was exhaustive.
  18. You're not wrong, it is a lot of money, but this isn't an amazon Curt rack. OP spent a lot of time for R&D. It's a nice rack for a market that doesn't exist for the R50. I know you were not trying to be a jerk but consider the work that goes into something like this before commenting... or at least ask why the cost. Do you also make these tents?
  19. I use a kuat pivot v2 swing arm. Since you have the steel version you could weld a receiver on it to accept your bike rack. The rack is plenty strong to hold the weight. That would eliminate the need for any additional accessories .
  20. That size shows 30.9" diameter, which is essentially a 31". From previous posts, that size will not fit without making contact with phb. I'd recommend any of the 30.6".
