42mm spacers each side will do the trick boet.

Also, if you cannot do the suspension lift for a while, then i suggest the following as a far cheaper alternative that will work perfectly fine until such time.

- Make some extended shackles for the rear leaf springs , easy, if you extend 75mm pin to pin you'll gain a good 1.5"-2.0" , depending on your current leaf pack
- Install front coil spacers that suit the vehicle once your extended shackles are in. All you do is lift the coil and slip them in. most likely 1" - 1.5" will be max.


I made extended shackles for my pickup as Mickem suspensions buggered me around big time, waiting months for them to even quote me and finally they said they can't make them,... i got the moer in and made myself, will post pics and writeup soon as i can for you. easy.

Anyway,.. i would do these 3 things and when you have the loot then put the 2" suspension lift in and remove the coil spacers in front.

I want to do a major service on the vehicle.

Is there somewhere a thread discussing all the correct lubricants & filters etc needed for replacing?

Is it better to get it from Nissan?

Air filter
Diesel filter
Oil filter x2
Engine oil
Diff front
Diff rear
Gearbox?

What else is there?
I might get a mechanic to assist me, but i want to make sure the correct oils/parts is used.

Whatever you do make sure you put correct oil in rear Diff. (Limited Slip Diff Oil).

As for other oils,.. i cannot remember off hand but they all in the manual. Can get all from midas/autozone etc.

Gearbox and transfer case take different oils too.

Good to also drop your radiator fluid and replace,.. also brake fluid replace.

At least you know everything is going to be in order after all this. Its worth it. You wont need to do this for a long while besides 7500km interval oil/fuel/air etc.
