Default Xterra68's B16 Sentra

We installed Monty's Volk CE28N on Xterra68's Sentra today. Here's the outcome, but it makes the poor stock suspension feel rediculously soft with those bald RE01R's.

It'll get lowered on Eibach pro kits for now, as there isn't a whole lot around for such a new model. Secondly it's a mode of transportation first, and a toy second.

Nice to see a B16 rocking some Volks though.

Wow, the profile of that car makes those 17s look like 15s.

It had more fender room than any FWD car I've ever seen. In the back there is at least 3" of room before you run into anything close to the wheel. The front has a great deal of room as well.

Front suspension is more or less standard issue Nissan stuff, with the chassis side of the LCA being changed. (not necessarily a bad thing)





Nissan changed from their long time supplier apparently, as Tokico has manufactured all the other ones I've yanked off cars.



The rear suspension was very interesting, and quite a bit different than my B14. I'll post pics in a bit of it.

Reminds me of an E30 rear trailing arm suspension, but with a much larger subframe.
