I purchased a 2006 diesel Pathfinder about a month ago with 200,000km mileage. I was really impressed with its offroad abilities on a trail and how well the traction control worked (having had most of my previous off road experience with manual systems). Only limitation was the ride height, especially since the front coils have sagged a bit. I am REALLY enjoying driving it Razz !!

Nevertheless, TODAY I dropped it off to get an OME lift installed. Its about 50mm. Am really excited to see and use it after the installation Very Happy

Thank you ranosgood for the good feedback on the OME suspension!


Chris, welcome to ThePath and thank you for the quality first post! Smile

Please consider posting pics from your exotic (to us) driving environment in a new thread in one of these forums (which we should probably merge):

I collected my car earlier this week with the OME installed with 50mm lift. Am very happy with the height increase. 50mm at the rear and about 40mm at the front. Under the car additional space looks substantial.

On Thursday I had a meeting in Ceres a town about 150km from where I live. I drove freeway and main roads there, some of them twisty roads and passes.

On the way back I chose a lesser used (tarmac) road which is very bumpy and twisty over an old pass that was built in the 1800s.

I was very impressed how it held the road especially around the bends. I especially drove faster (safely though) than I would normally and it stuck to the road like glue. A vast improvement to the standard worn out suspension. Not once did I feel unsafe or that it rolled too much.

Must take it out soon on a track! Very Happy
