Leaf Spring Life
(Whats is the life expectancy of the leaf springs on the Xterra?
In reading past posts, there are individuals which have needed to replace their leaf springs in less than 30,000 miles where as others still have their OEM springs after 130,000 miles.
Have you experienced any problems with your factory leaf springs or are you still doing fine?
Please share the current mileage of your Xterra if you have not replaced your factory leaf spring.
If you have replaced your leaf springs , what was the mileage at the time of your leaf spring swap.
How many times a year do you tow with your Xterra.
How often do you off road
I will start things off.

My towing is limited to a 5x8 utility trailer and an atv during the weekends of our three month long deer season
