Calmini (www.calmini.com) offers a value-priced 5.5-inch drop-bracket kit that will allow fitment of 33x12.50 tires, and Fabtech Performance Suspension (www.fabtechmotorsports.com) has a kit to increase ride height by 6 inches.
Total Chaos (www.chaosfab.com) builds a sweet tubular upper control arm designed to help improve droop while adding caster adjustment at the same time. In addition, the company offers the only 2WD front Fox coilover shock for the platform.
Radflo (www.radflo.com) builds Frontier-specific front coilover shocks (2.0 or 2.5) designed to improve performance both on- and off-road.
Deaver Spring (www.deaverspring.com) has both a rear minipack and a full-race-style leaf spring available for the '05-'08 Frontier. We've tested the minipack and will say it significantly improves ride quality over stock.

The potent 4.0L V-6 engine churns out a respectable 265 hp and is by far the better choice
We have yet to see this latest-generation Frontier receive a solid-front-axle swap. We thi
The Dana 44 rear axle is decent for a pickup of this size; just don't expect it to hold up
