While I'm waiting on the titan wheels to come back from the machine shop, I decided to do the rear axle swap for rear discs. As the rear end sags with added weight i. As the rear end sags with added weight i. Car Brakes: How Do You Know When to Change Them? Yeah, I'm always dragging my rear wheels.

Looks like I've got the 4. There are four ways to find a ratio.
Its a manual with power nothing, just the way i like it! I did this to a 1994 Nissan 4x4. It's unfortunate that you are so far away since I have an entire rear axle sitting behind my shop rusting away. You can see in the following picture that the bracket for the arm is still there, but there's no proportioning valve. It goes without saying that these pieces wear out, but they do so slowly, meaning you may not notice they need attention until. You should be able to swap the diff from your drum axle to the disc axle to avoid mixing up gearing. Am I missing anything important, that, part wise I should grab while I'm there getting things? By Zach Bowman For those who suffer a daily commute through heavy traffic, your vehicle's braking system can bring thousands of pounds of metal, plastic and empty Starbucks cups to a stop hundreds of times before you get to work.
If that's all that is bent, it's much easier to replace just a shaft than it is to replace the whole rear axle. Its my understanding that the brake master cylinder is preferred outta the 4 wheel disc pathfinder, but not necessary, correct? My issue is they are from the local pull and pay. Whats the difference between locking and un-Locking? I'll have to check the sticker of the other two next time I head down to the pull n pay. It is fairly easily adjusted and sits right above the rear axle connected with a spring. That probably explains why everyone is complaining about them locking up when you don't want them to.
The metal behind the grill is all the same between the pathfinder and pickup truck from back then. Get a quality set of pads n rotors for the front. Btw where are you located T-morgan tmorgan4 wrote:2nd, to everyone that complains of the rear brakes locking up too easily, take a look at your proportioning valve. Is there a way to simply and easily find out the gear ratios on them without busting them both open and counting? I got a new bracket from the dealer, of course I'm sure in a couple of years I'll have to replace the bracket again. It's unfortunate that you are so far away since I have an entire rear axle sitting behind my shop rusting away. If i continue with the 4. As far as the truck you have now, is it a manual or automatic? Is it worth it to up grade both diff's to the larger housings it'l;l set me back a whopping 160 for both front and rear assembly's complete and the 4.

I just realized that my Pathy doesn't have a proportioning valve like the older models, the spring-type. It seems they removed the adjustable proportioning valve completely.
The only other thing you will have to do is change the plugs on the end of the wiring harness for the lights but it is really simple. Most manuals came with 4. Easiest way to tell thoough is look at the data plate on the passenger of the engine compartment near the firewall.
