Installing a lift
« on: December 02, 2013, 12:24:00 PM »
Hi you guys, I am planning on buying the required items to get a lift for my 01' Xterra and was wondering if anyone wanted to help me out with installing it.  I was given the general info on how to do it from another member and it seems easy enough, but I'd feel comfortable if anyone would be able to actually BE there with me.  Of course I'd do all the work, I'd just like it if someone makes sure I'm doing it correctly and don't forget something.

I know there's going to be a mod day someday, but I was hoping to get it done BEFORE that (I'd like to use mod day for a lights installation) and since it doesn't seem TOO difficult to do a 1 1/2 - 2 inch lift, I don't think it'll take a long time.

Depending on schedule we may be able to work something out, though I have never done a 1st gen.  This week is crazy busy as I'm going to ASU game! Nothing planned the 14th as of yet though.

Oh dang, well I'm going to be ordering them pretty soon, I guess it depends on WHEN they arrive, but most likely the weekend after I get it.  But like I said, I'm waiting for them to send them my way.

Hmm well that's the problem right now.  I was ordering a kit but when I called them, they told me they were out of the kit or something along those lines, so I'm currently searching for some more.  Having trouble though, they have a TON of 05'-12' Xterra lifts, but so far not much for an 01' but I have to keep searching right now.

Here you go:

I dont know exactly what your looking for but Steve (owner) at Rugged Rocks is the man, very nice and knowledgable and can and will get you whatever you need (he can get more than just what is listed on his website), I highly recommend calling him and picking his brain to get what you want/need.

Good Luck!

Well, what lift are you doing exactly? A body lift or suspension/PML?

That's what I'm trying to find out.  I went on a trip with a couple people, and one of the guys I went with told me he had an 01' Xterra as well and that they're easier and cheaper to do a lift than the newer gens.  He said all I need to do is torque something near the two front tires and then actually install or replace the bolts or screws near the rear tires and that's pretty much it.  I've been trying to get in contact with him, or with the Lead coordinator I was with, to see if I can get more information.

Sorry I can't give you more info, we talked about it briefly and since it was like 4 days ago, I can't remember if we discussed a body lift or suspension lift.  I was just searching online for the prices, and wasn't actually expecting people to want to help out with the lift so quickly.

What you're looking for are shackles. These are pretty good ones: https://www.4x4parts.com/nissan/xterra-rear-lift-shackles-p-145.html
Thats about it for the cost, although you will NEED a tire alignment when you're done.

If you can afford a bit more, an add-a-leaf is also an option.

Both of those are for the rear axle and then you turn the torsion bars up front to change the lift up there.

lol i didn't know there was so many lift options but that EXACTLY WHAT HE WAS TALKING ABOUT!  Thank you Jack!  Seriously I REALLY appreciate that link and info, because I don't think I'd be able to get a hold of the member I was talking to!  I'm going to order these right now:

https://www.4x4parts.com/nissan/xterra-rear-lift-shackles-p-145.html

So if anyone has any experience in this, I'd appreciate the help and then also to change the lift.  And like I said, if anyone wants to help out (as it seems people do), it'll be the weekend AFTER it arrives.

def order those shackles.  They are the same ones I have.  As for adjusting the torsion bars up front, "all I need to do is torque something near the two front tires", Do some research on clubxterra or come down to tempe area and I can hook you up.  I have the PML and a 2" BL so if you are looking to do either of those I can help you out.  It's always nice to have an extra set of hands while doing stuff with springs and shit.
