For $500 and it runs you got a pretty good deal (even if it needs some motor work).

Sounds like you need to pull the codes to see what area is messing up.

Depends on how much space you have between the fender and tire. For the front remove the bumpstops, or replace with low profile bumpstops, and see how far down you can go. For the rear you can get either 3 or 4 inch angled blocks, and if that's not low enough do the hangar redrill, there's a how to somewhere on the forum.

As far as how low you can go, there's no limit really, you can be slammed so much that you can't clear speed bumps, just depends on how low you want to go. My frontier is about 3" down all around.
