Ok im gonna order my billsteins for my titan all the way around. But i want to also get it level.. SOOO im wondering whats about the best Spacers, Or new coils?? They both cost about the same actually.. But im reading here that the spacers sometimes hit the bucket. And the springs say they guarantee this wont happen.. What do you al think and what are the pros and cons of each..

Im gonna order tonight so hopefully il get some good input here on what to order.. thanks!!

heres the coils i was thinking about ordering..

I would not get those coils. From what i've read on here and other forums, they make the ride extremely stiff and are prone to break. I would get the 08+ 4x4 coils from Fontana Nissan and put the Bilsteins on the second notch. It is what i am currently running, without a sway bar, and I am sitting at 39.5" all the way around.

Nice lookin truck! I was wondering, do you ever get any coilbucket contact offroad or over speed bumps?

No CB contact. Adjusting the spring setting adds preload, not height to the strut like a spacer. It basically makes the spring stiffer, which raises the truck up. When I had a 2" leveling kit, however, i did have CB contact and i ground the CB down some. Its simple to do if you are replacing the struts anyway.

Bilsteins set on second notch with 08 4x4 coils. I need to get all my tools out and get a more accurate measurement, just dont have time.

Shop around for those 08+ 4X4 Coils..... while Fontana Nissan is good to the folks around here their prices can often be beat substantially. The Nissan part# for the 08+ 4X4 coils is 54010-ZR40A.

McCarthy Nissan has them for 74.42 per coil and FREE shipping. If you have never bought from them before you get a additional discount for making your first online purchase once you set up an online account, it's another 10% I believe. That should get the price of each coil to right at $67.00 and no shipping charge either.
