Re: Coming Soon: Front Drop Bracket Kit install and Regearing

Just poked around Amazon. I can't find any dimensions anywhere but the fronts and rears "look" the same. Maybe let us know if they work? Meanwhile, I may be replacing my rear sway bar anyway. I replaced the bushings a few nights ago and the ones I took out had deteriorated quite a bit, although only...

Re: Coming Soon: Front Drop Bracket Kit install and Regearing

I have a rear set of PRG links that will be going into the rear and when I bought it, their site says: "These are replacement sway bar end links for guys running tall leveling kits or extended travel upper a-arms. These are 1/4" to 1" longer than stock to prevent the endlinks from rotating past the...

Re: Fabtech Knuckles, Hi Lift Jack, and much more! Part 4

2. The heim Sway Bar End Links are designed to replace and upgrade the crappy factory end links that are a common failure point on both the Nissan Armada, Nissan Titan, Nissan Frontier, Nissan Pathfinder, and Nissan Xterra. The heim end links are much stronger than the stock parts they replace and ...

Re: R51 rear door rattle.

Would be the same thing. Open the rear hatch, remove the interior liner (plastic piece), and find whatever's rattling. I also damped and insulated my rear hatch. It's pretty surprising how much noise from way back there makes it all the way forward. I could hear the clinking of the lock on my bike r...

Re: PRG Swaybar Brackets and balljoint concerns

I fixed this issue by wrapping some electrical tape around the ball joint and it really snugged up the fitment of the ball joint. it had to be pressed into place after I wrapped it with the electrical tape. IS THIS OK TO DO OR WOULD YOU GET A NEW CONTROL ARM INSTEAD? I can't see how electrical tape...

Re: I have to Start Driving To Get The Front Climate Control Blower To Come On...

Super wierd. I would imagine if the fan motor were failing you would see indications of it. You can remove it and test it though.

I am thinking electrical...relays, signal ground somewhere, failing controller? Have you traced out the power and control lines in the manual to check them?

Re: Cross country trip: AZ to NC

An increase in transmission fluid temp will cause a corresponding increase in coolant temp. I monitor torque because a slipping transmission will not generate as much torque. An increase in heat under the hood will cause the intake air temperature to rise. That and/or a decrease in torque will caus...

Re: Has anyone done 4600 Bilstein front and rear?

Yup, the steering bushings will fix that. Here's my how-to, has a picture of the OEM bushings next to the Delrin versions...it's pretty clear where the improvement comes from:

Re: Heater problems- won't maintain temperature

Cleaning it took minutes. It was very, very fuzzy but almost all of it came off very quickly!

Re: Cross country trip: AZ to NC

I used one of those Uhaul car haulers with my Pathy a few weeks ago when I bought a 1977 Datsun truck . We were only going about 90km (55 miles) but it was not pleasant. The trailer vibrated the whole way. When I returned it I looked at the tires, three were bad and one was dead bald! Please check ...

Re: Heater problems- won't maintain temperature

I have a new sensor but it looks like a minor pain to install, so I just tried cleaning mine first. If you look inside the grill covering the sensor, I am 99% sure you will see it's covered in dust. The dust covered thing in the middle is the thermistor, and the dust covered thing behind that is a t...

Re: Should the heater pipe be a preventative maintenance part?

I did some more poking around. Looks like the Nissan sites list that pump as no longer produced by Nissan. On eBay, I found a thing that claims to be compatible with that part number and some others: https://www.ebay.com/itm/BRAND-NEW-Auxiliary-Water-Pump-fits-Nissan-Pathfinder-92516EA50B-/162386654...

Re: Should the heater pipe be a preventative maintenance part?

So I was actually looking for something completely different tonight, but, uh...I found the part number for the assembly without the motor and whatnot. Runs about $120. It's 92412-EA500, look up code 27185M. I ran it in NissanPartsDeal and it goes to the same drawing as the larger assembly. https://...

Re: Has anyone done 4600 Bilstein front and rear?

I replaced rack and pinion bushings from this australian company "superpro" they reduced NVH by a 30 to 40% They say they are from Texas ;-) If your bushings are really, really, really bad then you can get clunks when you hit bumps. But less than NVH, replacing them with stiffer material sharpens y...
