Yesterday I finally got around to installing the 2" Rough Country leveling kit on my Pro4X. Took me longer than expected but at least it's done. I bought it used off a fellow member and everything went together as expected.

Before:


After:




I drove over a few speed bumps at various speeds, and when driven fast enough I'm able to hear the upper A-arm contact the coil bucket. I plan to drive it this week and grind down areas of the coil bucket where contact is being made when I go to re-torque all the bolts down.

Looks good man! Unfortunately the UCA's are most likely hitting along the middle of of the CB so You wont be able to Grind that down. Not trying to be a bummer but I delt with The same thing.

Is it bad for just normal street driving? I have the exact same model, if you need the control arms should I just get the 3 inch kit that comes with it?

Normal street driving it wont be that bad unless you drive on nasty roads. I would just.get the whole kit and do it the right way the first time, it will save alot of hassle.

I haven't driven it much because I'm waiting to get it aligned, but I haven't noticed any contact during normal city driving. It probably won't be a big issue for me because I don't get off road much these days.

Im getting ready to buy a leveling kit. So do I go with a 3" that comes with UCA's? I heard that the 3" RC lift doesnt work right and you only buy it for the UCA's???? I wanna run 33's and dont know the best way to do so.

I did the same and love/loved my truck until my upper control arm broke while my wife and daughter where driving (lucky it happened while she was stopping at a light). Nissan have been terrible about the whole event and will not offer any help. I suggest you do as I am now doing and put PRG's uca's on, before we see a tragic accident. The stock parts are sub par and should be recalled.

Hey nice truck by the way. I have a 2010 Pro 4x as well and wondering if you installed any rear blocks? Would a 3" Rc work or any 3" work on a 2010 or is it better to stick to a 2"?Im so confused of what leveling kit i want for the front like a 1.5, 2 or 3. But i dnt wanna end up damamging my truck. I hear that if you installed a 3" there would be no contact on the UCA with the bucket. If you can please help me i would really appreciate it.

I only have 2" spacers in the front. I don't have anything in the rear, but plan to put 1" blocks back there. If you do a 2" level in the front, get UCA's. I think Rough Country has a kit with UCA's and 2" blocks. I would also suggest getting something that allows you to adjust your camber further than stock. When looking at my truck from the front, it looks as if the front suspension has + camber. It doesn't, it actually is set with 0 deg. of camber, but it looks bad to me. Its just another issue I plan to fix.

I can't speak to a 3" kit, I don't have any experiences with them.

Probably that when running Bilstein 5100's struts, that on some of the PRO-4x's, they had to purchase 1.5" leveling kits to get rid of the coil bucket contact, and that some also have had issues with running wider tires on stock rims or with stock backspaced or greater rims. Of course if someone runs a skinny 11.2" wide Kumho KL71 (35x12.5R18), then rubbing probably won't be an issue. Lol

Their newer revision of their UCA's hopefully addressed both clearance issues, but Idk.

Yeah RC came out with a 3" RC Leveling kit that came with UCA which more and likely those are the ones i will be getting with the 1 in the rear. I really dont understand what you meant by getting to adjust the camber. Can you explain. Thanks. Where you from? Did you install the 2" in the front yourself?

RC is a good company and has been around for a long time.
