    Got a replacement idler arm for my 04 X - 'Beck Arnley' brand. Also sold under the Moog brand I believe (link). Notice the thickness of the pin and difference in general metal construction (OEM Nissan idler on the right)!! The non-Nissan is literally half the diameter... bah. Considering the...

    So I have the Total Chaos 'king kong' aftermarket steering on my 04 Xterra. Installed fine and seemed super tight and bomber initially. I've had it on the truck for almost 2 years now, fair bit of logging road washboard driving, a bit of snow wheeling but no real rock crawling or anything. I...

    My truck has a moog idler arm, is this the same design as stock? and would a brace fit on it? Found one on 4x4 parts but they say it won't work with any after-market idler arms.

    Hi there! I have a 2003 SE S/C. My low beams work just fine, but when I push the combination switch forward to turn on my high beams ALL my lights turn off. I've read through this section of the service manual for ideas, but it didn't cover this issue. I've inspected the bulbs and the filament...

    I have an 01 Xterra that I bought last year and since then I've put a ton of work into it as whoever had it before my beat the crap out of it.. I paid too much for the truck but I love it and want to get it in top shape. The truck has a horrible door hinge like squeak when turning the wheel...

    Here is the problem. There is a vibration, more like a low frequency rubbing sound, similar to driving with no rubber bushings on an A frame trunnion but only when X turns left even 5 degrees from center. But only left turn about 5 degrees of steering wheel left thru. these are the things I...

    After installing my 3" SL I have always noticed a lot of play in my steering wheel. Other than that everything is great; and the steering actually feels stiff after that 1" of play in either direction. My question is what is the best bang for your buck steering upgrade? This is what I have...

    Please Help! I just bought a 2000 Xterra with a 3.3 v6 vg33e (Supposedly) motor, and the head gasket is bad. I have looked all over for a replacement motor but they all seem to have the alternator and power steering on the opposite side of what is in the Vehicle itself. Don't know why or...

    Ive have about 3 inches of steering wheel play in a 2001 nissan xterra 2wd and i was told by a mechanic that it may need new tie rods and a center link, so I replaced them, along with the idler arm and steering box and there is still play. The steering pump is fairly new and i don't know what...

    Today I started experiencing a noise while turning my wheel to the right. I am hesitant to fully describe the noise as it is somewhat subjective; but anyways I'll give it a try. It is almost a buzz or a humm. Basically it isnt a nasty grind or clunk. I was trying to determin if it was...

    Hi All, I have a 2004 stock XE that in my opinion has more steering wheel play than it should, even when driving on road. I can rotate the steering wheel at least an inch to two in either direction before I feel any noticable response from the wheels themselves. The X also has a tendency to...

    I replaced the power steering fluid lines, both pressure and return side. When I did this the original power steering pressure switch was now too large to screw into the new hose sensor bung. I ordered a new aftermarket oem replacement pressure switch and it is the correct diameter to screw...

    Hey everyone I'm on to a new venture after replacing everything I could and now down to the steering box as my culprit of sloppy steering but hoping it's just my center link. Has anyone had a steering box go bad? Tell me about it! When I turn the wheel to the left it's tight and to the right...

    I have a 2004 Xterra. Recently, the old girl has problems while turning at low speeds. For example, when backing out of my driveway it will idle backwards okay, but when I turn the wheel it's as if I'm driving through sand or the E-brake is engaged. I've checked the PS fluid, and it's okay. I...

    I was wondering if there was a DIY for steering upgrades, all in one thread? Or if someone was working on one? I wouldn't want to make one if someone already was..... I'm new to doing serious mods, but not new to a wrench. From what I have been reading here is you can do it piece by piece and...

    The rubber steering wheel in the 03 XTerra I just bought is pretty rough on top, and it looks rather simple to replace. I did find the same rubber one on ebay, but it sounds like they also came in leather?? Anyone know where or who might sell them besides the dealer? I would imagine they would...
