Anyone that lifted their T30 with King Springs


I just received a set of of King Springs KDRR46 and KDRF47.

The rear ones are way too narrow to locate into position on any of my 2004 X-ey's struts.

The original rear springs are 15-20cm in overall wound diameter, as per most factory progressive springs are. The KDRR46 springs however are 10cm overall diameter and have no shape. They are wound equally, all the way up, like a spring for a shock that mounts directly onto a shock absorber.

Maybe they sent me T31 springs?

According to their catalogue they are for the T30, KDFR46 front KDRR47 rear.
The T31 springs are KDFR94 front and KDRR95 rear.

Re: Anyone that fitted their T30 with King Springs, how'd the rear end go?


Yes, thanks I should have commented that I checked this before ordering.

And their catalogue shows that both springs are progressive strut style springs. Eg
https://kingsprings.com.au/catalogue/vehicle/794/nissan-x-trail-t30-2001-9-2007

However the ones I received are a white-labelled set from SSA in Qld. They are labelled 'Blue-max' with the code 'NIS-224' on both the box, and the spring.

I raised the matter with SSA- they are said the springs are in fact KDRR47s and will fit. I sent them pictures and they have said they are checking with King. Once these are seen by someone that knows springs it should be sorted out, as I added a pic of the spring and the strut's seat, to prevent confusion.

If anyone else has bought Blu-Max (or any other brand of spring) springs for their T30, I'm sure keen to hear if you got the correct springs in the box!

EDIT: SSA refunded the springs once they got them back. Did not confirm anything about why the mess happened. But I bet they were for a T31. In theMeantime have fitted a pair of Kings instead, and this time got the correct springs for my struts, in yellow. Phew..
