Default 1995 pathfinder lowering help!!!

Hey guys, so just bought a 1995 2wd, 4 door pathy and am trying to do a static drop on it. I've been trying to Google lowering parts for it and have had no luck. If anyone has experienced lowering a 1995 pathfinder that can help me out, I would really appreciate it. Thanks fellas.

Pretty sure it's similar to the hb, loosen torsion bar bolts up front and blocks for the rear(if it has leaf springs). I could be wrong though.

It has coil spring in the back. I'm not aware of any lowering springs exist for them. You may have to cut the stock springs to drop the back. The front had torsion bars but it is a different setup than the 2wd trucks so there are no control arms or spindles for it.

Yeah no leaf springs on these. Has coils in the rear and looks like they have a 4 link setup

Yeah that's what I think I'm gonna have to do. Drop with torsions in the front and cut the coils in the rear. Its too bad they DONT make any lowering components for the pathfinders. Thanks for the feedback guys

Clean Pathfinder and yes Torsions and cut the coils in the back. They have some huge bump stops too, so could eliminate them or get smaller ones to get a little lower.
