  • I would like to put a set of Bf Goodrich All Terrains on my 97 Pathfinder, I cant decide if the 30/95 R15s or the 31/10.5 R15s would be a better fit. Anyone have experience with either?

    I have a 96 pathfinder with uniroyal Liberator All Terrain 31x10.50 R15 tires they fit but they rub a little when making a hard right turn. Other than that no complaints.

    I just bought a 96 PF SE and I've spent all day trying to find a lift kit for it. I called calmini and they said that they don't have a lift kit for the 96 because it is a uni-body construction. Is this a new product?, and if so how do I get ahold of the kit. Please reply ASAP as I am looking to lift my PF in the next 14 days. Thanks.

    I'm looking to lift my Pathfinder(96 SE) anywhere from 1.75" to 3". Eveerybody I've talked to says it cant be done without alot of custom work which would make the vehicle unable to be used as a daily driver. Can it really be this tough? Is there anyone out there that can help?

    i can tell you that i put 31s on my 2001 and it rubbed a bit, but they basically fit and beefed up my look.
  • i have a 2inch lift for the truck that i am about to take off my pathfinder and i am taking the 32s off so i can sell it stock.

    i ordered the 2 inch springs and shocks and struts. i installed everything and it rode like hell. the next day i took my struts to the machine shop and had 2 inches from some old struts added to my new struts much better and also alot more articulation a must only thing is my new struts didn't last but about a year. maybe they were just some cheep ones they sent.
  • I have the same problem with mine, some one told me to check the rear wheel bearings, but I haven't had time due to the fact that I'm in Iraq, have you found the problem solution yet if so e-mail me at:

    To fix the sway: I too own a 1996 Pathfinder and replaced the 8 bushings on the 4 rear control arms (2 lower, 2 upper). The bushings were ordered online from Courtesy Nissan along with 8 bolts & nuts for about $150.00. The upper bushings are different from the uppers even though they look the same. Getting the arms off was difficult; in fact, this was the most difficult repair I ever did. Even with an impact wrench, Parts Blaster and a torch, the bolts were frozen and had to be cut with a grinder or drilled-out. Once off, the old bushing have to be pressed out with a 20 ton press (I did it with a 12 ton press but just barely). You also need the right sleeve (arbor?) to push-out the old bushings and push-in the new ones. Applying a torch to the arm helped when pressing them out. I got the press at Harbor Freight. Job took about 15 hours start to finish. A schematic can be found at http://www.courtesyparts.com/betasite/pathfinder-r50-1996-2004/genuine-nissan-pa- rts/axle-suspension/431-rear-suspension/-c-4700_4701_4800_4804.html. Nissan dealer price $1200 to $1600. You can also just buy new arms with the bushings installed. Good Luck!!!
  • My son has a 1995 Pathfinder.

    In addition to the more or less stock tires he also has 4 studded snow tires (in my garage) which he has no need for.

    He want's to trade/sell the regular tires and the snow tires (rims and all) for oversized rims and tires.

    I won't go into the merits of what he wants to do, that's his thing. I am interested in getting the snow tires out of my garage as quickly as possible. He has agreed to let me post them on Craigs list.

    The tires are radial WINTER KING P235/75R15 108Q M+S. The rims are (factory) painted white enamel with a red and blue pen stripe around the circumference. I don't think either the rims or the tires have been used much. The rims are in very good to excellent condition and the tires have excellent tread and, as far as I can tell, no missing studs.

    Is $350 a fair asking price?

    Apologies if this is the wrong place for this sort of query.

    Thanks.
