Installed. As anticipated I'm squatting a 1/2". Measures 38" from ground to top of wheel well in the back and 38.5" in the front. It definitely looks better I just wish KC had a 1.5" option to make it truly level.


Couldn't even pull it out of the garage for us haha. Looks killer man.

I want to install the same setup and a local shop recommended installing blocks in the rear to make it level.

Do they make 1/2" blocks? I guess you could always do 1" blocks and have a 1/2" rake which I'm totally fine with. Good idea.
This is an SV model right? The SL/Plat has a higher stock stance so I think the 1" blocks in the back might actually be level. I'm thinking about doing this.

I believe so yes. You wouldn't know for sure unless you installed and measured as truck tolerances tend to be alittle different even with same models. I want to install 1" truck blocks in rear so I have a slight 1/2" rake which I'd prefer over a 1/2" squat. RC only has universal blocks which makes me hesitant. I'm not comfortable installing parts not made specifically for my vehicle. Would be interested in hear others opinion on that though.

My thoughts exactly.... I have a SL & am thinking about the 2" Level with 1" Block in back. I drive 20-30k a year & a " Big lift" isn't practical.

yeah for sure. I lease and get a new truck every 2-3 yrs so not trying to dump a bunch of money into suspension. If you find someone that comes out with 1" blocks specifically for our application let me know and vice versa.

Nisstec Lifts makes some pretty good stuff. I just had the 2" UCA/1" block kit installed. I have about 300 lbs of tools in the bed in this pic.
Looks great.... what are the measurements? ( center of front & rear wheel wells)

I ordered mine from xterraperformance.com because it was on sale (same company as nissteclifts.com). I would post a direct link, but I apparently haven't posted enough yet to do so.

Part Number: N-17TI-TOP2-UCA

You can select what size rear block you want. I also needed the camber bolts. I talked with one of the guys at Nisstec before I ordered it. He was extremely helpful. He said that some of the Titans actually have the camber bolts from the factory. So you may want to check yours first.

I got this kit so I could maintain the factory ride. I did a spacer for my '13 Pro 4X and it stiffened up the front suspension too much for me.

The measurement from ground to center of wheel well after lift:
Front 39" - Rear 39.5" (with my tools in the bed)

I'm trying to find a small kit for my 2017 Pro4X, your last kit that was too stiff, was that a preload? Looks like your new kit it a topout?

Just curious why NissTec thinks you need control arm replacements when every other major manufacturer says its not necessary for just a 2" front level? They also offer a cheaper option without control arms $210 compared to $750.

I've already installed Rough Country 2" front level so I'm probably just going to buy the Nisstec 1" rear blocks ($83) so I have a 0.5" rake instead of a 0.5" squat.

Not sure why Nisstec does pre-load and why most other manufacturers do topout. They say so it doesn't affect control arm angles much but ofcourse compressing the springs affects spring rate and I would imagine a hell of harsh ride. Everyone seems to say with 2" or less topout is the way to go not affecting your spring rate and not high enough to do any long-term damage to geometry.
