you know, now that i looked at the service manual for the suspension on this truck, i think i could do the whole job myself now cuz the truck is 4.7k pounds (kept on thinking it was 6k before), i did the supsension work on my g35 coupe last year and for the money they wanted in labor i would be willing to do it for some else for 1/5 the money nissan/infiniti wanted me to pay them... it's easy as heck just as long as you have the proper lift ie one of those 64" full size lift from harborfreight (which only cost $69 on sale)... i think i will do mine when the time comes - sensors springs etc
g35 coupe have more sporty suspension with more parts involved so this truck would be nothing new except for the electronic airbag sensors etc which my g35 doesn't have but the service manual covers all that...
yea i hear ya, parts for the gx470 is highway robbery... parts for infiniti cars are so nissan like, they're dirt cheap... can't believe lexus is so mercedes and bmw territory... that's the really bad thing about this truck for me... awful
Well the clunk is getting fixed. TPMS sensors were out of range. As far as the rear end goes, height sensors are bad. They checked the the shocks too. They said thy were bad too. They fixed the TPMS sensors for free, dealer is taking care of the drive shaft, extended warranty is taking care of the height sensors. Im not sure if the shocks have gone bad. I think they are trying to squeeze some cash out of me. Hey claim all 4 shocks are bottoming out. $3000 to replace. $1500 for parts and $1500 for labor. Not gonna replace them yet. I need to do some more research on it. Has anyone replaced them before? I've replace conventional shocks and struts before but these electronic controlled shocks.
Do you know what the height sensor parts look like? Is it possible to take a picture of the sensor?
