Hello everyone

I’ve been doing some research to try and find a body lift for the R51 pathfinder and stumbled across this kit from 4x4 parts.

https://www.4x4parts.com/i-18980265-pathfinder-3-inch-body-lift.html

At $375 it seems like a pretty good deal. I have some general questions regarding the kit though.

1. Has anyone purchased and installed this kit on their R51 pathfinder? If so did you run into any issues while installing?

2. Where are the body blocks placed when the lift kit is being put on?

3. Do I need to Purchase alignment cams and bolts after installing this kit or will the alignment not be affected?

Pictures of this kit being installed would greatly be appreciated. If anyone can locate a link to the installation manual or send me pictures of the installation manual that would be excellent!

Thanks

I finnaly went ahead and purchased this kit today. I am really excited to see how it goes considering I never hear of anyone doing body lifts on the r51.

Here is a member who has the body lift installed maybe he can chime in @Touchdown

http://www.thenissanpath.com/viewtopic.php?t=18419


He also has suspensions mods.

As far as the body lift install the pucks go between the frame and body mounts.
I have helped do Xterra lifts I would recommend searching some the their forums also they have more detailed instructions. In a quick review I do remember specific tips.

Do one side at a time.
order all parts before you start. Different Radiator hoses coolant.

the body lift on moves the body up so the suspension stays the same so no alignment adjustments needed. but the steering does move just not 100% sure on the details.

You can get radiator hoses for lifted R51's at Offroad Gorillas's site. You'll probably need longer brake hoses, as well. Goodridge makes stainless steel braided kits for body lifted R51's.
