Guy,
do you not find that with the spacers the wheel hits the arches, or does your air supension stop that?

Thanks, Thomas.

Re: Add wheel spacers.

sorry mate!
I was testing the youtube button in a live forum and forgot I left that there!
I might leave it there for posterity, and for the "Most boring youtube video ever" prize!

cheers

Re: Add wheel spacers.

guydewdney - how thick were your spacers?

Do the spacers cause any problems? I like the look of the wider stance.

Re: Add wheel spacers.

Just a point worth being aware of;

When I added spacers to my D40, I bought ones advertised as for a Navara D40. There was never any mention of needing to modify them or that they could be used on other types of vehicle. Even when the sellers' own mechanic test fitted one for me to check the clearances before I paid for them (very helpful chaps), it was never mentioned as he rattled the wheel nuts up with an air gun.

The next day I took the truck to a local small garage to get them thrown on as I couldn't be arsed to do it myself. All four went on nice and easy......until the last nuts to go on the rears, which were the locking nuts. Two guys working on it at once, crack, crack, eeerm, both locking nut heads' sheared off......

On closer inspection we found that all of the dome headed nuts had torqued down onto the dome head and were only just gripping the wheel as the studs were too long. They hadn't pushed completely throught the domes, but had done enough damage to crack the chrome in the exact shape of the stud end, thus ruining a full set of nuts and lock nuts.

Quick phone call to Nissan and find out a full set would be 135......cough.

I had to strip all four off again and cut all six studs on each down by 7mm to get the standard nuts to fit. When I spoke to the spacer supplier, he wasn't particularly concerned and told me that he knew the studs may be too long..................

After much discussion, I persuaded him that as the other garage had done exactly the same as his mechanic had done and thus couldn't be blamed if he felt his guy was in the clear. I didn't get a OEM set of nuts from him, but got a decent set that fits and went and bought an OEM locknut set myself.

The frustrating thing is that I'm a maintenance engineer and live by the rule: measure twice, cut once. I always check parts are correct before fitting at work, so the only time I get someone else to do something basic on the truck and it goes tits up!!
