I tend to buy everything from Rugged Rocks. I remember when Steve started on NPORA and he has the best service of any online store that carries Nissan parts.

He appears to carry Rancho, Bilstein and OME

I've seen ct motorsports get some Nissan stuff for people. Ski usually has reasonable prices and excellent service.

I like Steve and tried to support him but last order was screwed and he seemed non-chalant about it. So unless I really need to, I will not order from him.

4x4parts has always pulled through for me. Although not always the way I want (ex. only needed a couple of bushings but had to buy full kit...sigh) but they got the stuff to me in under a day with no extra fee. They also ship orders in one package (ex. 2 rear leafs, shackles, and bushings). Doesn't seem like a big deal but it is a lot harder for courier to lose 1 package than when they are sent in multiple and the packaging protected the contents fairly well.

I had the opposite experience. I ordered things from 4x4parts and parts/instructions were missing. Ended up having to buy elsewhere as they did not give a rats arse.

Ya. I got a bad experience with my shocks from them. I ordered a set, and the typical Rancho 9000's only lasted a few weeks. I went to get them warrantied and shipped back down to the US. They wanted then for me to pay to get them shipped back up to Canada, which I've never paid ever on what part of a warranty exchange for any products. After some arguments over the phone, they sent them, but despite specifying to mention that it's a warranty exchange on the shipment, they didn't and I got dinged with brokerage fees and taxes.

TMR Customs and CT Motorsports are definitely radflow resellers. They may or may not be able to make recommendations for your application but I'm sure they could get them.
