First thing i did with my Xterra was a basic spacer and shackle lift kit. Then came the tires. When i upgraded to the Shrock front and rear with sliders, i had to get a much better suspension. Went the full meal deal, new leafs, shackles, upper control arms and coilovers.
Let me know if you need any help of advise, i've done all the work myself so i can give you some tips.
