Well, you need to measure to see how worn your rear leafs are. Usually lifting the front ~3/4 of what the rear is will put you about level (the rear will typically drop as you raise the front). So if you have 1.5" rake, lifting the front ~1" will put you pretty level. Every truck (xterra) is a little different though.

And keep in mind that a LITTLE rake isn't bad... it'll level out when you throw a cooler/toolbox/heavier spare tire/etc back there.

I ordered the 1/2" spacers from PRG to level out while I wait for a nicer setup.

I measured the rear and it sits 1/2 inch higher than the front. I just ordered the 1.5inch shackles and will lift the Front 2 inches that should level it. So pumped many mods to come for the X in the next week or 2. Just did my exhaust today from the secondary cats 2.5 pipes with a flowmaster super 44 muffler. Calmini prerunner bumper on the way and level 8 tracker pros should be installed tommorow or friday.

Cool beans. I'm confused though, is the truck into your avatar yours? It already has a calmini pre-runner bumper. I must have missed something.

He sold that bumper (on here?), and bought another one (without the hoop?).

Yea i sold it to a member here and now i've ordered it without the top bar, without the side plates, and i'm having them do 3 light tabs so i can mount my 3 Hella 500s. I actually put that money aside, sold it for $500 and didn't spend till recently so only had to put the difference which was only $32 since me and my buddy ordered the bumper at the same time and split the shipping. Cant wait so pumped!!! Hopefully they dont take 4 months this time lol They told me 4-5 weeks i really hope thats the case.
