2005 Pathfinder SE Rwd here. I'm looking to buy the Rancho quicklift leveling struts for the front and the polyurethane coil spacers for the rear. Part numbers RS999922 and RS70077 respectively.

As a complete lift noob, what do I need to keep in mind throughout this process? I assume there's nothing needed for prep but as I understand it, I need to look out for a few things after the install. Such as getting the front aligned (but no need for rear?), camber bolts (not sure what those even are), and I assume there's more that I just don't know about. Any words of wisdom to this clueless dude would be greatly appreciated!

Caster/Camber bolts are eccentric so that, when turned, they will move the end of a control arm out or in to get the wheel alignment in spec. Some 2005's had them installed from the factory in the front, but Nissan used regular bolts later, requiring camber/caster bolts to be installed when needed for alignment. There are also such bolts in the rear suspension.
Any time you change suspension components, you should get a wheel alignment. If you lift 2" or more in the rear, getting the alignment in spec can be tough to obtain unless you get eccentric control arm bushings to allow more adjustment.

I just installed the Rancho kit, but instead of their coil spacers I bought Old Man Emu HD rear coils. They added about 2" of height.

My rear camber can't be adjusted into spec right now. So next I'm going to order offset bushings for the rear control arms. I'm at about +1.5 degrees camber on both sides.

Sometimes the coils may settle after a week or two. You should be able to get close into spec if all you have is two inches up over oem. I Got 4 new adjustable bolts for the rear and was able to get into spec

You all don't happen to have a part number for the camber bolts, or a link by chance ? Laughing Laughing
