Re:


Hi guys, just a quick question for those of you running the 50mm Superior Eng kits on a T30, how is the body roll factor when cornering??

Effectively you are moving the centre of gravity up 2 inches, does it have any adverse effect when cornering?? Not that you tend to go flying round corners but as the stance of the Exy is quite narrow, the last thing I want to happen is to roll it after fitting the lift kit.

Also if any of you out there are running the lift kit with the strut bar and can provide comment??

Re:


I was wondering about this when I fitted the spacers but could not notice any difference

I don't have a strut bar.

Re:


Hey Alex I remember reading in previous posts of yours about needing to replace the nuts when installing the spacers.
I take it that the spacers come with nuts which are used on the threads of the spacers (if that makes sense?!) so are you saying that you need to replace the original nuts that are used to hold the strut in place?

Re:


Hi Beni

Without going through my posts again, I think it is the nuts that hold the strut onto the steering knuckle that I was talking about (the 2 big ones at the bottom - not the 3 little ones at the top). They are self locking and of a type that probably does not work (as well) the second time they are used (there is no nylon in the threads. The nuts that come with the spacers have the nylon and in my experience can be used a few times). I was just following the advice in the manual. The manual does not say to replace the top ones. Read the manual which can be downloaded from a link that is somewhere (that I cannot remember) on the forum web site (or was when I would doing this work).

Having said that, i think if I do it again I would reuse the same nuts and use loctite (I like to save money when I can).

Alex

Re: T30 Suspension Lift


After spending (near enough to) all day reading here, I haven't found my answer. And not really understanding the posting logic on here, I'll post in here & hope I don't lose track of it if moved emoticon

One rear, & one front strut are leaking, so I figure I'll replace all 4. When I 1st got her, someone (can't remember where or who) said they're much better with different suspension, rather than genuine, so I'll replace all 4 springs as well.
Nissan has quoted $1500 JUST for the rear & supply only, but like everything else, I'm guessing after-market has to be cheaper.

Everything I've read has been about lowering or raising the XT. I haven't been able to find anything about simply replacing, & with which brand/s, & keeping at original height!
I'm not after height, it's already high enough for me/us, though I do suspect there will be some because of sag from the old gear.

Am I also right in saying (from reading here) that after-market gear will make the ride a touch stiffer/harder?

TYI emoticon

Re:


I'm not too sure about same height suspension but if Pedders do 35mm lift coils they are certainly able to supply standard height ones.
I would start by hitting the phones to see what's available.

There might be some members on here that kept their original T30 suspension from lifting their X Trail, most would be glad to get rid if them after sitting in the shed for years.
I still have my T31 coils that I can't give away.

Don't even look at Nissan, too expensive.

Re:


Bob,

Are you using the Site Search feature at all to help you find the corresponding topics and information? If not, then that would explain why you can't find the answer in this thread, as it only deals with raising/lifting the T30 X-Trail.

Please do a search on "replacement shocks and/or leaking shocks" and you will find existing topics HERE which give you details on aftermarket replacement suspension that is the same height as the factory one. Some are harder than others, but it's all being discussed in the corresponding shocks replacements threads.

If the shocks are leaking this has nothing to do with the springs and you don't need to replace them either. Just replace the shocks/suspension of that's the problem.

Anywa, please use any of the existing threads above to ask follow-up questions, as you are in the wrong thread.
