Do you guys/gals think it would be possible for these lights to fit the front bumper location in any capacity? They are probably bigger then the factory ones but I was thinking I might be able to make brackets or mounts for them.

I have heard there are SPC uca on rockauto selling under a different name maybe "mevotech" something like that for alot cheaper then SPC.

So this is the what I found on Rockauto:

http://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.php?pk=6556084&cc=1433009&jsn=410

After discount and shipping to where I work I would be looking at 206$

Ok dumb question, are these UCA or LCA?

Well I just picked up some OEM Pro 4X shocks (front/rear) with the Rough Country 2.5" spacers and some shackles for the rear. The OG owner took off the stock/OEM suspension at 42K miles and has been sitting ever since. Once I get a house and have a good place to work I will do a better lift...

The plan is to knock this out on Saturday morning before the wife wakes up. As she wants to go do something... Wish I put 2 and 2 together and seen the Clean Up for Saturday...

A big thank you goes out to Matthew of Gilbert for hooking me up and Stoic if you see this I still plan on buying your wheels.

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?

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.

Good evening. On my way home today I noticed that the temp gauge was creeping up. The water level was low and it has been sometime since I have checked it. Just a few minutes ago I checked the water level and it was low so I added some coolant/water. To allow for more water/coolant I turned on the heater to allow that to fill, but the heater was blowing cold air.

I was wondering if this could be the issue...

It leads into the firewall and looks like it feed the heater core. There is no water under the Xterra or in the cabin. This is the only place that I can see any water/coolant loss.

Any other ideas?

Common fitting to break I would order it asap before it breaks completely and you get stranded. Frontiers and Xterras dont have rear A/C so it should be a cheaper easier fix then mine. If you have no heat it might have an air bubble and low coolant from the leak

I do have hot air now. I was driving to work this morning and tried the heater and it was blowing hot.

Do you know what part that is called?

Not sure what its called. Dealer should have it. Ebay is cheaper depending on reproductions.
Just a heater core connection/splitter

Well I was finally able to get the stocks/spacer and shocks/shackles installed. I broke down and bought a 25" breaker bar from Harbor Freight. It broke all the bolt loose with ease. The UCA smacks the coil bucket but I am planning on replacing the UCA with these UCA from Rock Auto. I just need to find out if it is a single UCA for that price or just one.

Also after completing the work here is the end result too.

The price you see is for one UCA and RockAuto is about the cheapest place to get those.

Kyle,

Thank you very much. I was looking around on a few Xterra sites and it appears that buying from them is not much more then Rock Auto.
