Frontier and Pathfinder compatibilty

Looking for new suspension for my Aussie Pathfinder and there isn't as much gear for the Pathfinder as the Frontier. In Australia they are pretty much the same, was looking at the PRG lift with 2.0 Radflo coilovers and 5125 Bilstein rear shocks. Granted the frontier kit comes with shackles but I can delete them and just get my rear springs locally. Link for kit is below

Will this lift fit from Frontier to Pathfinder?

Thanks in advance

For Christ sake keep your money and run screaming the other direction from PRG.

Greg is a nice guy but knows absolute shit about running a company. I fucked around with PRG for 8 months to get my shit. I did finally get it, but in the time it took I could've bought all I needed from other places and had at least as good a setup as I have if not better.

You're in Australia. For the love of God you don't have better vendors/companies local?

The rear suspension on the Frontier is leaf sprung and on the Pathfinder it is a coil sprung suspension. The only common parts would be the front suspension.

Yeh I knew about the rears, was wondering about the front. Thanks Glenn

We don't have half the aftermarket gear you guys have over there, so why not buy from you guys? We are helping your economy too, what's wrong with that?

There's nothing wrong with it at all. I just figured that it would be easier to source parts for you if you kept it local. You also wouldn't have to deal with the ridiculous shipping prices.

Pathfinder and Frontier front suspensions are the same. Get a pair of C/O's, a new UCA (to eliminate UCA to coilbucket contact) and new shocks/springs for the rear and you'll be in good shape. What are you looking to be able to do with the Pathfind when done?

I have a heavily modified Patrol ute (pickup) for the fun stuff. Pathfinder will be for the missus to drive the new little one around town and will be used on tracks to go surfing and beach or when we all need a light trip out of town for a change. No major tracks or anything cause that's what the Patrol is for without the missus. Haha

Knowing the limitations of IFS/IRS I was thinking of a nice 2" lift, rear locker, chip and exhaust to make a capable all rounder. I think in the Pathfinder setup, flex is important to a degree due to suspension setup (limited by torsion bar angles etc) so locker will help with that but I agree C/O's, UCA's, new rear springs and shocks and was thinking Airlite 1000's for when.
