I like it. They are up on their stuff, Not Aluminum! Great! I like this part. Hope no one has a seperation! Ouch! They don't mention possible UCA contact Would they?
They do mention a Rancho Off Road package from factory? Is there one?

"If you have been looking at the various Nissan forums , you have probably read about the problem with premature strut failure. This failure is caused by installing a spacer (plastic or aluminum) in between the coil. This pre-loads the stut/coil causing a much stiffer ride but also over-extends the strut shaft causing the strut to leak and fail, and in some severe cases completely seperate. NOT GOOD!!!"

Been lurking for awhile, this post made me register tonight.
I am interested in these spacers. I have searched different X forums and have come up with very little. The folks on the F150 forums seem to like them. I'm a little leary of the fact that I can't find anyone that uses them. All I want to do is level out my X. Should I try them?? My new tires will be here next week, may as well put spacers in and have a front-end alignment when I have my tires mounted up.

Pretty much the same as Daystar spacers. B Slater did a bang up write up that is sticky on lifts hows and whys and whats. But that is what I have is a spacer. Nice price on that. I like it because it retains ability to use factory shocks and is a DIY quick install. MC

The only reason no one here is really using them is because they came out so late in the game. Everyone here pretty much had there lift or is planning on more lift.
It's a ridiculously simple design and just a copy of the Daystar spacer so for a cheap leveling-it-out solution, go for it!
Or for a very top notch spacer set-up go with PRG!!!http://www.prgproducts.com/frontier_components.php

I I like the idea of the machined spacer over the sandwich design. In comparison to the Daystar, it seems easier to install and more true to OEM design. Unless you guys find a reason for me not to get it, I will be ordering it up soon. I have some 265 Nittos coming next week, I know they will clear with no issues. Timbrens are next. Just want a little more clearance up front for the snow season and a more level stance. What should I do???]

I put them on yesterday>>>

I am happy to be here,if you knew the journey i took to be here!Newbie with an 06 s x..lovin"it so far..3000 k already. Any way,easy install(Once the balljoint is off) and really dosent level it but makes the front taller! Will install shackles to level back and 33" this week... BFGS285/75/16 ONE THING!!!The nuts supplied to attach Spacer to top of strut do not Fit..the nut is the right size..however the Flange on the nut hits and cant be tightened.If that makes sense..Auto parts had nuts that fit just fine..(NOT the very top nuts on top of tower;supplied with spacer,factory nuts in between dont fit).

Did you notify the company of this issue? Might make it better for others down the road.

THANKS!!! So now I know it can be done. How tough was it to align?? If you get a chance before you lift the rear, could you post more pics so we can see how much higher it is in the front, please? The way I see it, having my X higher in the front could have three solutions to level it out.
a. Lift the rear
b. Shrockworks Front bumper
c. Both a. and b.
