Default Teaser...New direction for truck

Well My tires were starting to get pretty worn....And I was on the fence about whether I wanted to lift or lower....
And Then..I stumbled across this on craigslist for 175...Talked the guy down to 150...
Guess come spring time Imma order some new tires..and Get to work lol!!!!..of course with help from a good friend Brian in ft wayne... and advice from the forum!!!












I do have a couple questions...
The first one Being, I want to order some air shocks for the rear..to help adjust stiffness and ride height for when I have weight in the bed in the winter...
Does anyone know what Shock length I need..or what year Nissan hard body I can order air shocks for that would fit for a 5" drop

also....in one of the pictures..one of the balljoint boots is kinda pulled up..was wondering if those are replacable and where I can get just the boot..instead of putting in a all new joint...because the kits a low mileage kit and the balljoints seem good

Let me know what yall think!

shouldnt cost that much to have new ball joints pressed in since they're already off

its a fairly low mileage kit and the balljoints seem nice and tight..so I'll probably leave em unless..I might change the one on the upper arm seeing as it has a boot that might be messed up!

as long as they seem tight, then you should be ok, i was told on my kit that it had 10,000 miles on it, i think i have put another 10-15K on my kit
