I know I sound like a broken record... asking the same question 10 different ways, just trying to make the best decision the first time.

So I decided I should upgrade my rear set up - I currently have airlifts with stock springs and shocks. I want to firm it up to reduce the "squat" as much as possible when towing.

Should i do the Moog 81119 springs or V8 PF springs, or Armada springs? - appears I can get either from rockauto.

Also... would it be dumb to not do rear shocks at the same time? I have heard a lot of people here rave about the bilstines 24197434.

Oh, and I have Moog quickstrust in the front.

thanks again!

I would go with the Moog coil springs and if your rear shocks are original, I would go with a monotube rear shock, like Bilstein 4600's, Monroe Reflex or KYB Gas-a-justs. Bilstein is typically the shock of choice for these vehicles.

Just FYI RockAuto has ACDELCO Armada springs on closeout for $38 for the pair. This is for the RWD SE model. Comparing the specs to the pathfinder version, the armada version is 0.2" shorter in free length (16.1 vs 16.3"), but has more coils, and a larger diameter coil. The rated load is also higher. The armada spring is also variable spring rate.
