Does anyone know the eye-to-eye length of the X's leafsprings? I have a 05 Frontier which is spring-over.....the springs come totally flat from the dealer, and they have a slight bit of negative arch now, probably due to the 2" blocks.

I was hoping I could use the stock X springs in 1 of 2 ways:
1) Run them spring over, although tha this will probably give me too much lift.
2)Run them spring under, and run a shackle and/or 3leaf AAL for 2.5" of lift.

I do not know, but I can tell you, the stock X leafs are no better. Before I put my Calmini (2 leaf) AAL on, my leafs were completely flat and resting on the overload leaf.

Same leaves... i'm 99% sure, in fact the pack that Alcan bases their's for the X on is taken from a Fronty... that's the reason people have gotten them with the center pins installed the wrong way. SO vs SU.
I think the X just has the mounts positioned differently.

hmm...well good to know guys. I definately dont think they are the same springs, because if I remember correctly, the stock X springs have a pretty decent arc to them stock, the fronty's come flat stock.

But eitherway, it looks like they are pretty crapy springs. I guess I will have to give Alcan a call.

You will probably spend b/w ~$200 to ~300 for Xterra springs. You can spend $400 for a pair of custom springs from Alcan.
