does any company out there make leaf spring flip kits for the X? if not, is there a downside of having this kind of kit? thanks

No makes a kit that I know of. It usualy is something that you buy or make the nessary brackets and start cutting and welding. With a spring ove axle you will get more axle wrap. I belive Ponyboy BoonDox and 8th Man have done SOA when they went to a SAS.

exactly, trying to find out if anyone makes flip kit to raise it 3"?
A flip kit would raise it more than 3", probably closer to 6".

It will raise it the thickness of the axle tubes plus the thickness of the leaf springs and spring perch.

This Mod is ususally more trouble and expense than it is worth. Partly because there are other options that are bolt on, and do not require welding. You need to be really hard-core to be able to make use of a SOA conversion. Besides, if you are dragging your spring mounts, you are going to bust other things too, and they are more important.

not necessarily. here's a link for a SOA conversion done on a 02X (i know, not the same) but still, check it out.

It does NOT provide the 6" plus of lift that everyone was afraid of. It provides probably around 4" of lift, which is perfect for Xterras.
prolly gonna hafta be custom, but it is doable.
