Rear suspension QX56, 2008

I have auto levelling rear suspension, AWD4x4. As I understood from some themes of this forum, it is impossible to find the same replacement for stock rear shocks.

Does anyone have an experence of putting double shocks at rear suspension or could advice me how to do it?

I have seen this article and foto:

http://www.truckinweb.com/tech/body/.../photo_29.html

but the problem is, that I don't want to lift the car. So, is it possible to put double shocks in this way, as it shown in the picture, without lifting?

If yes, many fanks for the link, where I can buy shocks and necessary parts for it.

OEM from Nissan or Infiniti is the easiest.... Some of us don't like the OEM so we're looking at alternatives. If you change them out for aftermarket, you also need to change the springds for some non-Tow package springs. PRG Products is looking into alternative solutions for us.

If you want cheap and are in a hurry, you can order them from Nissan. If you don't need the load-leveling, you can order the other springs from a Nissan dealership then put on some Monroe.

No, I don't know how it would be possible. The top bracket is the Drop Bracket so it is not a seperate piece to be installed seperately.

Thank you. So, only one way to put double shocks is possible - to lift a car...

Another variant: is it possible to replace stock rear shocks on Rancho 9000 with manual rigidity switching? And to muffle compressor pipes in order that not to replace it? Thank's!

P.S. This I'm going to buy, advise needed:

Rear: http://www.carid.com/2008-infiniti-q...m-1492300.html

And may be this?: http://www.carid.com/2008-infiniti-q...m-1491633.html

Those shocks will work fine but I wouldn't waste money on those polyurethane spacers on a 6,000-lbs vehicle. If it were me, I'd spend a little more for CNC billet spacers to avoid degredation.

Ditto what Pops said about the spacers... I know PRG Products currently does have an additional option or two for shocks and as Pops stated above is currently working on some additional options for us- so unless you absolutely need to swap out shocks now... you might be better served to wait a bit for some even better options that are coming down the pipe. Especially for those of us with auto-leveling.

Unfortunately, I can't wait cause my friend from NY soon is going to Moscow, so I have asked him to buy this RS9000XL - front and rear.

One more question - how to avoid a computer mistake after the stock shocks will be replaced? Is it possible not to switch off a compressor, just to muffle compressor pipes - so that pressure there remained? Or there are another variants to avoid a computer mistake ?
