Re: Leaf suspension options (New Tires: b. 205 65 16 = 26.5")

Sun Feb 14, 2021 11:30 am

So, Leafies; got these at Costco, and my driveway problems are somewhat solved for now.

205 65 16 (= 26.5")

Here are my observations.

1. I love the ride; it feels so much easier going over rough spots on the 405 fwy in Los Angeles County. This makes the Leaf feel hardly "jarry" at all.

2. Driveway clearance problems are somewhat eliminated (a little hint of scraping still)

3. Ride is slushier, and for me I'm not needing performance riding, so this is of nominal significance for me

4. Spedo is off by 2-3 mph as I go faster:

Examples include

a. 72 mph shows, I'm actually going 74

b. 74 mph shows; I'm actually going 74

I wonder if I can program wheel parameters using Leaf Hack at some point?

In any event, this beat having to change suspension for now; I am just loving the ride thanks to

c. TickkTock (https://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic. ... 1&start=10)

As a reminder, I upgraded the battery so the Leaf weighs more, which gave me driveway clearance issues...

I did forget to take 'before picture' - I'll try to get around to after when time provides with a ruler.

And yesterday's number with new battery (noting that when I go 80 mph off and on, I drop that in half along with hills).

I was wondering if the following suspension lift spacers will work on Gen 1 Leaf, and what is the preferred amount lift amount - 30 mm or 40 mm (without CV axle issue):

I would like to have an easier time getting in and out of the lear, sort of like a crossover (CRV, Rogue, RAV4).

I do plan to upgrade to 205/65R16. Range impact is not an issue.

Thank you in advance.
