Front PML only
One thing I have noticed on all first gen xterras and that is they always seem lower in the front as if they are nose diving. My truck was at least 1.5 to 2" lower on the front, stock that is. I planned on doing a full PML then I thought why don't I just do the front and make the truck ride level. After torquing up the front this is what I benefited:
1. Truck runs level, no nose diving look.
2. Braking is alot smoother, truck does not sag in the front when slowing down.
3. Truck looks alot better.
4. Gained alot of wheel clearance on the front.
5. Stiffer up front.
6. No real need to add longer shackles on the back.
At this point if I were to add longer 3" shackles in the back I would still go back to the drooping front look before I even started. Over all it looks so much better and I have the clearance on the front an back.
