New suspension or lift kit


Greetings from Nova Scotia Canada
I've wondering about lifting my 2006 Xtrail Extreme ,and seeing if any of you have triied to the lift kits that are out there and the resaults you have had .
I'm buildind a 2 inch lift for mine now instead of buying new struts ,I will be installing upper strut solid bushing on top of the strut (2inch) with an extension on the 3 mount bolts to fasten to the inner fender .I know it will change my camber angles as I was once a alignment tech here in canada.I would like too hear you thoughts on it
Thanks Rick emoticon

Hi Rick,
If you search the forum you will find lots of information about the 2" strut spacers for the earlier model Xtrail and how they are not suitable for your model due to the rear being a separate shock and spring instead of a strut.
You could fashion the same thing for the front but you will need an extended spring for the rear to compensate for the extra strut spacer you make.
Others have gone to airbag lift kits which can be found for your model.

Hi Hawk05,
I have a diesel T31 here in New Zealand and found on Ebay a lift block 30mm lift (legal here if less than 40) they went in fine, but the rear blocks were really hard to get in, so if going taller make sure you have some spring compressors which can be easily undone in place once in.

Also a bottle jack to help make the gap bigger.

I want bigger wheels now.

Thanks
