I’ve looked for these used on many junkyard hardbodies and they’re all either missing or torn. I don’t think Nissan used a very durable material for them. I think it’d be better to cut out your own...

Yes, it was enlarged to 16mm threads over the stock 14mm threads by someone before I bought it. But to fit the new 16mm bolt, they also had to drill out the shaft hole 16mm well.

For anyone that wants to replace them:
I’ve read ways to do it are with a shop press, or drilling holes in the bushings to weaken them and then pull them out. I recently replaced mine and found a...

I suspected that as well. Since Nissan had no V6 option those years, they lowered the gearing to make up for that with the I4.

Factory Gear ratio change: 1996-1997

Anyone know why Nissan switched from 4.37 diff ratios to 4.63 on the 4x4 2.4L but only for the 1996 and 1997 model years?
