Partno 54618VB000 - different for different models?

Post by Florian320 » 14 Sep 2016 18:05

Hello!

I want to replace my front connecting rods as one really looks bent.

I found the part number 54618VB000 to be correct according to nissan4u.com ('99 4500 GRX).

But as I searched for the part in the internet I found 2 different versions of this part with the same partnumber.
So I am now unsure wether there can be two different versions of the same part using the same partnumber. Wouldn't Nissan not change it if they did a major change?

In Germany I can get this part from aftermarket dealers, as usual for less than helf of Nissan's price.

Yes, I think. It is the small rod which connects the front stabilizer ends which the chassis.
In the Patrol manual it is called connecting rod, but I think, drag link should be the same.

Yes, you are right.
I now realized that it was not two different parts I saw but a few dealers offer that bar with a translucent rubber which made me think it would be a different part due to poor picture quality.
But now I got it and ordered - from an OEM manufacturer, 34€ for two. I think, that is more than ok, the original Nissan part costs 42€ each.

Thanks for your help!
