  • PitSnipe (Kyle): Wow, I have not heard of this issue. 15 hour job for a $50 part is nuts. Hopefully someone that knows of this issue will speak up.

  • downs44: Got an 06 that just went through SMOD. Got everything replaced. Now my low oil pressure light is flickering on after the engine warms up and the truck is at idle. Doing some digging on the forums it looks like a common problem is the rear timing cover gallery gasket leaking and causes the symptoms. Looks like a 15 hour or so repair for a $50 part. Was wondering if anyone else has had this issue and any words of advise. To save some dialogue, the oil pressure sensor is about a year old and I changed the oil and filter after i noticed the light and that did not fix the issue.

The bumper james built on my X. It dropped the rear about 3/4"-1". I may add a shackle or something in the near future, once I move I will paint the side bumper pieces and mount them :). The ride is still good with the bilsteins. Lastly, I need to pick up another alloy wheel and a proper size tire. The butt looks low because its on an incline. It is just a 2" lift in the rear though.

I may put a shackle in the rear to bring it up more. I'm pretty happy with it though

Looks good!

I've got a 2" shackle for sale for $50. If you want to bring some food and drink, we can get it installed in about an hour.

How hard is it to replace brakes and rotors? I need to do it to my xterra and this will be my first time

It is very easy if it is a 2nd Gen
1- Remove wheels
2 - Remove two caliper bolts
3 - Remove Two Caliper Bracket Bolts.
4 - Pull off rotor.
5 - Compress Caliper pistons
Install in reverse order.

When done press brake pedal to floor a few times to set the caliper pistons. Once the pedal is hard you are good.
Check the brake fluid level.
Then start the vehicle check the brake pedal again and test drive it. Make sure you do a few panic stops to really set the calipers.
