It was a good event. Saw only a handful of non Jeeps. They got lots of toys! I didn't win anything. They had hot cocoa, Donuts, coffee and Santa was there... next months won't be so big.

Xterra Garage / Re: A new build and it will be a slow build
« Last post by ShockBlue_Scott on December 14, 2017, 08:21:24 PM »
Replacing the front coilovers is a 3 hour job - 1 hour if you've done it before.  3 nuts up top, 1 on bottom, and the sway bar (times 2).  Torque spec on lug nuts is 98 ft-lbs - a 150 ft-lb torque wrench will handle that.  No need for impact wrench or compressor.  Dunno about the back - I've only replaced my shackles - not the shocks (yet).

This should be an easy mod-day event.  I would volunteer to help, but you live an hour away :(

Also, I'd be careful about 2.5" spacers unless you have weak springs.  I put in 700# springs (to support my 400# max carnage bumper) and had 1.5" spacer.  My UCA was hard up against the coil bucket and never moved - had to take out the spacer (H/T Eron).  So I've had some practice in front end disassembly/reassembly :)

I tried breaking the bottom shock bolts loose using hand tools with no luck. I did not spray the bolts that could be the issue. The shackles are not the real issue it is more the shock mount bolts and the rear sway bar. Does anyone know if the stud that is part of the endlink and goes through the sway bar if that is keyed for an allen  wrench?

As far as the spacers and springs. The setup I have now is stock Pro 4x Bilstein yellows.

So a little update. I have not installed the Pro 4X suspension yet. Looking for either someone with a compressor or an cordless impact gun.

Does anyone on here run any form of aftermarket headers?

I am looking at the following...

Doug Thorley long tube

A "No Name" long tube on 4x4parts.com

and the Twisted Steel tube headers on 4x4parts.com

For those that are running headers what are the pros/cons?

Practical and Useful Gift Idea:

Give a gift that your family and friends will appreciate year-round! Floor Mats and Cargo Area Mats will help keep a vehicle's interior looking like new. For serious protection against winter grime and spills, choose Aries Style Guard, Outland Deep Tread, Wade Sure Fit or Westin Profile rubber Floor Mats. Precise laser measured fit, breathable layers, raised edges, factory retainer hook connections, and shape retention under heavy loads/extreme temperatures are just some of the features built into mats RockAuto carries that ensure they fit, last, protect and make interiors look polished.

For an exact match to a vehicle's carpet, choose die cut ACC carpet floor mats, available in a wide variety of OE yarns and colors with the option to add logos (Buick shield, Charger R/T, 4X4...) available for some models.

Through February 28, 2018, take advantage of Westin's Winter Rebate which includes Profile Floor Mats (up to $15 back!). Find the Floor Mats and Cargo Area Mats we have for specific vehicles in the "Interior" category of the RockAuto catalog.



Gift Idea (or X-Large Stocking Stuffer) for Less Than $10:

Need gifts for clients or coworkers that are useful and make a good impression? SolarGuard Windshield Covers are effective, premium quality and Wholesaler Closeout priced at less than $4! SolarGuards are individually boxed; even the packaging is classy!

Find your SolarGuard Reflective Sunshade Windshield Cover under Window in the "Accessories" category of the "Tools & Universal Parts" tab or simply click here.



Let Them Choose the Part, Repair Manual or Tool They Need Most:

Make your gift giving easy this year with a RockAuto Gift Certificate! A Gift Certificate will let the recipient get the parts or tools he/she most needs! They are available for any amount, are easy to purchase and even easier to use!
