Thought I should give the group a quick update

As of today

I have ordered all of the necessary parts and they will be on the way.

I am basically rebuilding my entire front and rear suspension.

Here is what im replacing

Front:
Lower Control arms
Moog Camber/Caster Bolts
Moog Quick Struts with a 2 inch lift spacer

Rear:
Lower Control Arms
Moog Camber Bolts
PRG Sway Bar End Links (you gotta get these!)

Some of my parts have arrived this week ( see post below)

I saw that someone mentioned that the rear didn't have adjustable camber bolts for the control arms. I did some investigating and I found something interesting:

Facing towards the front of the vehicle (non adjustable bolt)



Facing the rear of the vehicle (adjustable camber bolt)



Is this normal to have on rear lower control arms? I usually see either both camber bolts or both non adjustable bolts. Not 1 of each.

I mentioned im getting PRG end links. If you do a lift, you need these!

Here is one installed on the drivers side on my pathfinder.



These end links are length adjustable. You can adjust them so they can better handle your vehicle setup.

There are adjustment bolts in the rear suspension. One is on the rear, lower control arm that houses the coil spring. The other is in the front, lower control arm of the rear suspension; on that control arm, the front mounting bolt is a regular bolt and the rear mounting bolt has the eccentric for adjusting. So, yours is the way it should be.

thank you for clarifying!

I just found an old thread that answered my question.

My lower control arms did come with new bolts. One is long, the other is short.

That might be what that longer bolt is then. The shorter bolt is either the pinch bolt for the knuckle or the shock absorber bolt. The longer bolt came with a nylon locking nut. regardless, i have enough camber bolts to complete the job.

Thanks again smj!

Just checked the longer bolt

it is not long enough to be the regular bolt smj mentioned above.

It is most likely the pinch bolt for the knuckle.
