I do have a couple questions...
The first one Being, I want to order some air shocks for the rear..to help adjust stiffness and ride height for when I have weight in the bed in the winter...
Does anyone know what Shock length I need..or what year Nissan hard body I can order air shocks for that would fit for a 5" drop

also....in one of the pictures..one of the balljoint boots is kinda pulled up..was wondering if those are replacable and where I can get just the boot..instead of putting in a all new joint...because the kits a low mileage kit and the balljoints seem good

Let me know what yall think!

You get them @ Kohl's right?

30% off if you used your charge card.


On a serious note enjoy winter in a lowered truck. Any northern guy will tell you it's murder.

Well experience is defiantly everything when it comes to that stuff. the lowest truck I've driven in snow was a ZQ8 S10 and that thing was a nightmare. No weight in the bed though so that probably would have helped. If they say it's good then it's probably fine.
