check this thread out for your suspension q's.

Depends on what you mean by "serious inches"? Either go SLR or consider spending big bucks for the SLR.

I just got the Total Chaos UCA + Radflow Coilovers and Deaver AAL for the rear. That's probably your best bet in terms of part quality for the 2.5-3 inch lift arena.

Correct me is I am wrong, but the tires you mentioned are for 15" wheels. I don't think there are any 15" wheels what will fit out X with out a lot of work. So you might want to look into that as well.

So, for about $200, you'll get a 2.5" lift up front and the rear will be lifted 1.5". This is pretty much the best you can get for the money. If you add a set of BFG A/T's (265's), you'll have a very capable off road vehicle that can tackle any fire trail or perhaps a mild intermediate trail. In addition, you won't compromise street performance with this setup. Here's what your truck will look like with the lift I just mentioned (I had 285's in pix):

No, I had a shop replace the coils for me. I'd highly recommend you have someone do it for you if you don't have the proper tools or the mechanical confidence to do it yourself. The spring is under a great deal of pressure and can take your head off if you don't do it properly.

I'd suggest that you start calling some wrenches in your area and ask them if they can swap out the springs for you.

If you haven't done so, join your local Xterra club and ask them for advice.

Have you sold your AC suspension stuff yet? I thought I read that your were going SAS. Did you keep the Bilsteins on w/ this setup? Lastly, those BFG's, are they 285 75 16? I like Syndicate's tall and skinny shoes, but would prefer AT over MT. Anyone know if there is 255 85 16 in an AT?

How is the ride after the lift? It doesn't look like you have a heavy front bumper or winch, right? The front springs arn't too stiff? You kept the stock Bilsteins? I was thinking of the shackles or add-a-leaf, or both.

You can order those two components in this package:
