    I was looking online and found a set of front and rear adjustable shocks sold in both 0-2in or 2-4in i guess my question would be if the 2-4in shocks a stock replcement lifting shock without coils and would i require any other parts to install?

    Front bils are adjustable from 0-2" of lift. They use the stock springs and top plates/hardware.
    The rears are not adjustable. Rear shocks provide no lift, the leaf springs do. The rear bils are available to accommodate the amount of lift you have provided by the leaf springs. I personally have approximately 3 1/2 of lift due to an adjustable shackle and an aal. I bought my bils from prg for 3-5 of lift

    Yea im online like everyday looking around for a nice way to lift my X but all the reading on XN has really got me leaning more towards a titan swap i know a guy that wrecked an armada a few years ago and he still has it sitting but idk much about the armada if everything is transferable

    Not sure about the control arms, but the front diff will work. Probably have to regear it though.

    We are running the Bils up front on our Xterra set at 1" the added a 1" spacer plate from Nisstec.. This keeps your factory smooth ride with 2" of lift added.
    Anymore than 2" you will need new Upper control arms to battle the factory control arms from hitting the bucket.

    Think about this though.. If you are planning on lifting more down the road then do it right.. Save up and get the Nisstec MK84's and SPC control arms for the front and in the rear new leafs and maybe shackles... Yeah its a lot more monty but the road you are heading down.. It will save you money from switching out a year from now..
