NP  Also chuy did you do a suspension lift also if so did you use axle degree shims on the rear. that has caused some vibrations for some guys if they didn't use them.

Alignment, Wheel Balance, Torque, all good vibes now.
« Reply #136 on: July 06, 2016, 06:11:29 PM »
I took the X in for a preliminary alignment today, the Firestone at Luke rarely gets it right but they brought the vehicle much closer to spec from where it was. Oddly enough this is the only Firestone I know of that prints out their alignment sheet in black and white, its usually in color everywhere else I have been.



I have a follow up appointment at the firestone closer to my house, I have had much better luck with them in the past with my lifted vehicles.

I noticed almost all of the vibes were gone after the alignment but it still had some, I recall having some vibes before the lift and telling myself I need to get my tires balanced. Im guessing the vibes I was feeling were mostly bump steer because of the caster along with me noticing the vehicle more.

I took it to Discount to have the wheels balanced and rotated they also torqued down the spacers to OEM spec.

The X rides so smooth now, smoother than before the lift. Im guessing it was a combination of small things causing me to notice the vibes more.

Thanks to everyone for all of the input, crossing my fingers a tire doesn't fly off.

Did you use loctite during the install of wheel spacers?

I did, I usually have the wheels off at some point every month so I will periodically be checking the torques to see if anything moved.

Looking sharp, do your sliders hang slightly lower in the front compared to the rear?

Not at all. That's just the angle your looking at.

Gave it a bath. Now I can see a difference from the new window tint we just had done. Aside from the desert paint, it looks nice when it is clean, not perfect. I really need to decide how to make the plastics glean again. Any suggestions? Rattle can it?

Replaced the rear brake lines with longer aftermarket ones.



What should have took less than an hour took way longer, the bolt holding the left brake line halfway snapped off. It was rust welded on, and I eventually had to drill it out.



The OEM bolts are a little long and almost half of the threads are exposed. I cleaned out the treads and replaced them with some bolts I had lying around.

Looks good, I just ordered some front lines and have some backs laying in the garage.  Looking forward to getting them installed.

I purchased the front and rear from Nisstec $180 for both sets. I'm curious to see if Titan brake lines are a little longer or would accomplish the same thing.

Got tired of no radio reception on trails. Swapped out the stock radio for a JVC with AUX and USB support.



The interior isn't very clean. lol

Put a pioneer double din head unit in my Nissan. Also added subs in the back as well.
