Lowered to lifted..Pictures and lift result from titan 4x4 coils and Bilsteins
Hey guys, I'll keep it brief:
Earlier today I had a normal height Armada with MotoMetal 18s and 33" BFG tires and lots of plastidip...
This weekend I added:
Bilstein 5100 adjustable front shocks (.5", 1 1/2", 3" lift adjustments)
Part number 24-197649...Listed now by Bilstein as a direct fit for Armadas
I ordered from Amazon.com and received 2 days later for $94.59 per shock with free shipping (best price I could find the first week of May 2013)
Total: $189 to my door
In the 1 1/2" setting (middle one)
To match the Bilsteins in the front, I purchased 2008 Nissan Titan Pro4x 4x4 coils from Rockauto.com based on some info from the titan guys. Basically these coils are a tad longer to compensate for the 4x4 extra weight the 08+ titans carry and when these same coils are placed on a 04-07 2wd titan...well you get a lift due to the lower weight of the truck's suspension vs a 4x4 (the spring rate is different so they dont compress as much with the weight)
For the rear coils I ordered Raybestos 589-1150 Professional Grade Coil Spring Set from Amazon as well. $106.00 shipped to my door. They are listed as "Rear Coil Springs, 4WD, PROFESSIONAL GRADE - SE" BIG THANKS to theJrod for the research on that one. They are the 2207 pound load rating heavier springs.
To the rear coils I also added:
Rancho RS70076 Quick Lift Rear Kit (79 bucks to my door from Amazon.com)
I gained over 4 inches of lift in each corner.
I had expected at a minimum of 3" from some research but its officially confirmed
. No dreaded coil bucket contact, smoother ride thanks to Bilstein. I'll post the actual before/post height figures this weekend but yes 4" of lift all around at minimum. Here is a before and after:
