      I just thought I'd share my find this morning lol. That shouldn't be hard to make though... just to be accurately welded methinks.

        it wouldn't even need to be that accurate. the rear shock doesn't determine any geometry like the front. and if you've gotten this far, you probably have length adjustable coilovers that can correct any slight variation in height from side to side.

          I actually want to go the other direction to get more droop out of my 8610's out back :-\

            The welding doesn't look very strong since I'm betting the weak link will be the bottom weld bead which is in shear and bending.

            And it looks stupid.

            McCoy, get rid of the 4x4 status and you'll get some more droop.

              what about using something like this?

              That way, you don't have to chop up your shock towers.

              *(I know they don't have a nissan application for this, but I've seen people cut out the center of stock upper mounts and weld an extension on them - which is fairly easily done.)
