The 4x4 torsion bars are very different from the 2x4 torsion bars. In fact, the 2x4 torsion bars are about 2x as long.

This has to do with the 4x4 suspension and axle up front, which is going to...

I logged 40,000 miles with the headers on the 3.5L Altima before selling it, and they never turned blue.

But the frames from the back of the cab forward area the same, so the torsion bars are only different between 2wd and 4wd.

You will need to have him measure it exactly down to the quarter inch. The regular cab and extended cab Hardbodys have slightly different size beds (I think it's like 1-inch difference).

Might want to experiment with more or less Kentucky Windage. You do not want it idling the highest and not so far the other direction that it is stumbling. Find a nice, middle ground.

Focus on basic repairs first. New distributor cap and rotor, new plugs and sparkplug wires, and make sure the Ignition Timing is at 10 degrees using a Timing Light.

Haha! These trucks didn't come with carbs. The throttle body is considered fuel injection.
