Deaver Springs Kit

We wanted to improve on Nissan's factory ride quality, so we contacted Deaver Spring Manufacturing of Santa Ana, California. Deaver builds a soft-riding minipack that replaces the OE overload leaf with a three-leaf progressive add-in pack. The design helps eliminate ride harshness by distributing ride forces over a larger spring surface area. The kit raises rear vehicle ride height by 2.5 inches and comes complete with all necessary mounting hardware. This modification improved ride quality significantly. The only downside to this setup is that the design diminishes payload capacity by about half, which means you can't tow or haul as heavy a load as before. For our purposes, this sacrifice was well worth it.
