  1. How To's, DIY and Write ups
    I am writing this to try to help others with some updated information. Piggy backing off of chuckamazuk, and their thread "Bilstein Shock and Calmini Idler Arm Brace Install [First Gen]" In their right up they list theses shocks “Bilsteins, F4-B46-2126-H0 in the rear, F4-B46-1099-H0 in the...

    So you’ve bought your 2003 Nissan Xterra SE as this years winter beater and I couldn’t be more thrilled for you. It comes with all the basic needs of a 4x4 rig; tires, a heater, some head lights, etc, and you’ve taken a photo of it far enough back for just about anyone to justify it as a good...
  3. Offroad Suspension & Steering
    I know I know, "just buy new shocks made for your truck." But if I can save $80, then I will. A local guy is selling Bilstein 5125 rear shocks, brand new. They are specifically sold for a Tacoma. I read a post from TJTJ about compressed and extended length requirements, and these shocks fit the...
  4. Street Suspension
    Disclaimer: This is my first post and I am by no means a "car guy". My 2002 XE SC V6 could use new suspension. I bought it 6 months ago and have no idea when it has been replaced, with 165xxx miles, they are visibly rusty now. I am running a pretty tight budget and found the Gabriel Ultra's...

    Hello all, I think this might be my first post here, but I am not new to forums at all. I really don't have any questions, just posting my upcoming plans for my X, and curious what you more experiences users have to say. I have a 2000 yellow 5spd, with roughly 130,000 on the clock. Needless to...
  6. Parts For Sale
    I bought these Bilstein 4600 shocks for the rear of my 2003 Nissan Xterra, and only used them for about a month before I lifted the truck and had to get extended length ones. These are in "as-new" condition and will fit 2000-2004 Xterras and Frontiers. The Bilstein part number is 24-185011...
  7. General Discussions
    Hello everyone, this is my first post. I was just wondering if it is okay to have Bilstein shocks on the front and Monroe reflex on the rear. Is is a cardinal sin to mix brands? I have a 2002 X. Does anyone have any opinions about KYB shocks? Also, from all of the posts I've read, I should...
  8. Offroad suspension & Steering
    So I'm on 4x4 parts trying to piece together a SL, and I'd like a little help to know if I'm headed on the right track here. As for my car, I own a 2011 Xterra... So far everything is stock. As for the lift I've compiled together this is what I have. Bilstein 5100 front adjustable shocks...
  9. Offroad suspension & Steering
    Hey all, looking for some help with some Bilsteins. I have a 2003 and just bought some front 4600 series shocks with an order on hold for the back ones. I am wondering if anyone knows what series (if a specific series) was put in the 2005+ Xterra 4x4 OEM Off Road Packages. I want to know if...

    I'm trying to buy new shocks for my '03 Xterra XE 4x4 and I've narrowed it down to either Rancho RS5000's PNs:RS5392 & RS5393 or Bilstein 4600's PNs:24-187824 & 24-185011 & 24-184908. I live in Colorado and spend a lot of time in the mountains on washboard dirt roads and rocky paths. Of course...
