Anyone know the difference between 2WD and 4WD rear springs?
Are they interchangeable??
Thanks!

They should both fit regardless of drive train. I did a quick check in the Moog catalog based on the year of my vehicle and found the following that were different between the two;

2011 Nissan Pathfinder SV (Moog springs)
RWD Front Spring Height - 13.625 inches
4WD Front Spring Heght - 14.0625 inches

RWD Rear Spring Height - 15.69 inches (398.46 mm)
4WD Rear Spring Height - 16.25 inches (412.75 mm)

The spring rate was the same for the rear on both as well as everything else. Literally the only difference was spring height. I would assume the fronts might be a little stiffer to account for the transfer case on the 4WD models, but the spring rates were not listed on the site for those.

On a related note, I would replace the rubber spring seat with a new one if you replace the springs. They're not much and it assures that everything is new in that department.

Shock wise I would imagine you'd run into the same. The main difference would be stiffer dampening for the 4WD shocks vs the 2WD because of the extra weight. I have Bilsteins on mine so in case you're looking for shocks as well the part numbers are below;

2011 Nissan Pathfinder SV - Bilstein 4600
2WD Front - 24-137430
2WD Rear - 24-186919

4WD Front - 24-197427
4WD Rear - 24-197434
