Nizmut over at Clubfrontier figured out that the outer stub shafts on the Titan and Xterra/Fronty are exactly the same. I had heard that the spline counts were different, but never stopped to check. Obviously this isn't the case.

He was able to slide the Titan CVs into his Frontier spindle/hub, and is in the process of installing Titan uppers and lowers. Although he is still in the process of re-assembling everything, it would appear that you can forego having to source Titan spindles, hubs, rotors and brakes (and keep your 6x4.5 bolt pattern if you want). Check it out;

That was never a question. The reason for needing custom CV shafts was if you wanted to keep your stock diff, he is using a Titan diff. and the only reason to use Titan spindles/breaks was if you wanted the Titan bolt pattern.

Interesting.

I still have hopes on doing a Titan diff with stock X suspension.
To do that all you'll need a a Titan diff and CV axles off of a V8 Pathfinder.

Your tranny has nothing to do with it...I assume that was just a brain fart on your end. You mean diff?
Oppps thanks for catching my fart :banghead: Yeahh I meant Diff. Although I do have a question about the Tranny. Why is it that on that Frontier Forum he says it is going to cost him more that he doesn't have an Auto?????

I have no idea, that doesn't make much sense, but maybe it has something to do with clearance. Maybe the Titan diff doesn't fit with a manual? This is just a guess on my part.

The diff side of the shaft is different between the titan and X diff. So no, I am pretty sure the titan shafts will not work on an X diff.

if they are just talking the front, doesnt that create a gearing problem with the back?

That's what I figured, just wanted to hear it from someone. :happy8:

See my post above.

In the X yes, it creates a problem. With the Frontier, there are some models that share the same gearing as the Titan.

You know what, that might be the difference between the auto and manual.
