Thanks Justin,yes they are. I already purchased a body lift prior to getting the sliders. I have the extra body lift kit sitting in the garage. I'm usually not a fan of body lifts but on the X I think it works.

If you are considering doing a body lift I would do it. I have been getting compliments from both of my neighbors and everyone at work. They all seem to like the new look, I love the drive now it has more of a commanding view of the road.

I had the day off after a long weekend. My new suspension and wheel spacers came in Friday just as we were heading out of town. I only had time to do the front today.

I love the way the truck looks and rides now. Looks more monster truck!



I swapped out the old eBay TC UCA's and stock coilers with 2.5" lift spacer. I also decided to add new brake lines to look bling, the OEM ones would have worked fine.

I have no idea what the coils come set from Nisstec at but Im riding at just about 39" still so I'm guessing 2.5 or maybe 2".





Cutting the coil bucket took the longest, I went slow and only left 1/4" clearance at full tilt.




BORA 2" Wheel spacers, Ill let you guys know if one of my wheels comes flying off. I torqued them to 70 Ft Lbs, and used blue loc-tite. They look and feel very solid, much heavier than the TG spacers I used in the past.

Let me know how those BORA spacers work, I had mine on for a month and it was a nightmare. Even after shims and alignment. I asked BORA if I had the right ones and they told me according to the records they have that they never made spacers for a 2nd gen.

Did you have stock rims? Usually stud length is the issue with wheel spacers.

yes, steelies.

I'm getting some vibes from 55-65, but smooth after and before. I hope its alignment related, but I think its the spacers. I'm going to re-check them today. One of the front spacers was a very snug fit.

Sure did, ill see what the alignment does for it. I might have also knocked off a weight too when I removed the tires yesterday.

You may also re-torque your lugs on the spacer should be at 98 ft-lbs same as your lugs and as you do with your lugs make sure you do a star pattern while you tighten them.

Thanks Brent, the instructions said 70 Ft Lbs which I thought was a little odd. I might try the 98 Ft Lbs  wheel spec torque for them.
