Default Lowering a 2002 Nissan frontier

Hey Guys, I just sweeped up a 2002 Nissan Frontier and I want to lower the front with the dropped spindles, but I don't see any made for this model. Does anyone know if the drop spindles for the 98-00 work for the 2002 model? and if so, was there any drawbacks or modifications? Thank you and stay safe.

Yes I believe there isn't an ABS sensor mount.
Pretty sure there is a couple threads about this, give a quick search to see what others have done.

Is it a 4cyl frontier or a V6? All of the V6 frontiers were built on a 4wd chassis, even the 2wds. So those spindles will only work if it’s a 4cyl 2wd.

I apologize for not stating it but it's the 4cyl 2wd model. I did do a search but couldn't come up with an exact answer or a person that actually did it. Thanks

Hey Partner, I apologized for the delay, but I completed the truck. The drop spindles for the 98-00 frontier worked perfectly.
