Nope, no issues and I abuse the heck out of it. I drive like a teenager.

Somebody on the Frontier forum tried and confirmed they won't fit under the 16" wheels.

How did you do the rear diff - did you do the G37 swap?

When the U-joints were replaced - the shop could have accidentally flipped one of the the flanges 180 degrees. That could have upset the balance.
But yeah, a driveshaft shop can sort it out.

When you put the new bolts in slather them with grease! It will keep them from rusting in place again.

How does this used fluid look?

That oil looks fine. The gunk on the plug is fine too. I pulled four differentials last month and my rear plug had way more metal on it, the other three (two fronts a ...

Just thought of this - the sway bar bushings are notorious for getting sloppy.

Yup still here. I recently posted some stuff about brakes and gears.
I sanded the factory clearcoat (powedercoat?) just enough to flatten the surface and make a good key. I think I used 220 grit.

Mine is LE model year 2010, but build date 9/09.
Cutover must have happened near the calendar year.

I got the 9416K148 @ 200lbs. These threads are fine and will NOT match the stock ends. So, I also ordered QTY 4 9416K76. 15 minutes and works amazing!

What year is your car? I just put these spr ...

Even better - we were camping last weekend and I got to compare regular light bars to El Jefe. These are cell phone shots but I cropped and resized to get them framed the same:

Finished up the front last week. I found a 3.69 R180 from a 2006 Xterra for $399 at another salvage yard in Fontana. They included tax, so technically the price was about $360.

In terms of the G35/G37 carrier being swappable (or the carrier from the rear of a Frontier with 3.69 for that matter) yes I believe it is. If I was changing the ratio to 4.083 I would have harvested ...

I have 18".
To clarify, the widest part of the V8 caliper has 9mm greater radius from the axle centerline vs. the V6 caliper.
