Nissan trucks use a torsion bar suspension at the front end rather than a torsion beam. In this system, a bar and lever support most of the truck’s weight. The exact position and height of the bar is essential if you are replacing the torsion bar on your Xterra yourself. Once replaced, you should have a mechanic confirm the ride height. This height (along with the replacement process) can vary depending on the exact year of the truck.
