Add a leaf

So I just came across these on Amazon and thought id share because it looks like a great deal, as well as ask a question.

Heavy Metal Lift Kits Nissan Titan 2.0" Rear Add-a-Leafs + Shims High-Grade HEAVY STEEL 2004 - 2015 Titan Lift Kit https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00L3OJC06..._ZFyDybMYJY2XT

So I guess the question is, should I replace shocks with ones that are for a lifted rear end?
If so, I can only seem to find shocks for 4" lifts. Whats out there for 2? Do you need anything else, like will this change the angle of the rear driveshaft too much?

What do you guys think?

Where do you find this set up? Cost? And what are the additional benefits over what I found?

Re: Add a leaf

If you are 2wd, the 4wd shocks are 2" longer. but might as well get the right Bills.

AAL when I had in my silverado made the rearend bouncy when unloaded. I find the titan is already pretty bouncy unmodified, when decelerating.

I've only heard good things with the Deaver's from PRG vs any other add a leafs.
You can get them from PRG $219: PRG Products These springs will provide approximately 3.5" of lift on a 4wd and approximately 2.5" of lift on a 2wd.

Or these $219: PRG Products
It gives you approximately 1.5" of lift on a 2wd or 2.5" of lift on a 4wd

Re: Add a leaf

Combined with the Bilstein 5125's gave the Titan a well balanced suspension

Re: Add a leaf

4" block. Came with the 6.5" spindle lift. But I didn't want the Cali Rake look so that's why I got the Deaver's to level the truck.

Thats sweet man. And yeah. Just a little and on a budget. I got the 2 inch leveling kit from rough country that I'm Going to put in. Got it to raise the truck a little, not to level. I'm ok with the height difference, thinking I wanted to add the same 2 inches in the rear.

Re: Add a leaf

If the Deaver C30's give a bit too much lift, take a look at the C10's. Available at PRG Products like the C30's, as LS said, or you can get them and other PRG stuff at PerformanceLifts.com, especially if you have problems getting in touch with PRG. I've had good luck dealing directly with PRG, others report major issues... PerformanceLifts just gives a good alternative to get the PRG products, which are quite good.

Cheers!
