hi guys i am new here i just bought my 04 4dr LE 4x4 last week. it already has a banks exhaust,cattle pusher :), and 20's with nitto terra grapplers. 305/70?/r20s ( is that close or equal to a 33?) but anyway due to the nice beefy tires on there i want to install a leveling kit. i would like to go with a 3" kit. will that work? 3 front and 1.5 rear? i dont want to cause other issues other then needing an alignment.


thanks in advance!

i have a 3" leveling kit on my ride and it didnt cause any problems. i have an 07 se, but i dont think that would make to much difference as to the same issues. it looks great to, i didnt get an alignment until i put the body lift on, but you may need to when you do the leveling kit. hope this helps.

Is yourtruck 4x4?


I read something about poppin a clip or somthing off the front axle if you go higher then a 2" due to wheel travel. Idk how true it is. The 2wd is not affected

I think your talking about the clip that is supposed to hold the axle in. I actually had that happen to me with my 05 4wd when I was installing the level kit but I just pushed the axle back in and it hasnt leaked a drop. Nissan has a junk axle clip in the half shaft of the front diff.

305/70-20 would put you close to a 37" x 12" tire!! I can't imagine you being able to fit that without some kind of lift on already. Are you sure that you have the tire size right?? A 33" would be a 305/55-20

305/55/20 is correct sorry about that I was unsure and didn't run and check before I wrote that.

No worries. I think your first step is to check your rake right now. Take a measuring tape and measure from the highest point of your tire to the fender straight above it. Do this for both the front and the back. My guess with the extra weight of the grill guard, your front is going to be at least 2.5 inches lower. That will help you determine how much height you need to level out the front. This will help you determine what lift you need as well. Prgproducts.com is my recommendation regardless which way you go.

I personally would just go with a 2.5 inch leveling spacer up front. Are you trying to fit bigger tires or just want to be taller??

i just want to be taller. i like where the rear is but the front is just to low. im thinking 2.5 too. i just don't want issues with popin axles or whatever.

Anytime you lift a truck's front end whether it be a half inch or 10 inches you need to go to an alignment shop. The toe in alignment can be adjusted yourself to make things manageable to get there but you still need to go to one. They will fix it regardless of lift or not.
