I've just taken delivery of a new N-Guard. On the whole, I like it but the suspension seems very firm, you tend to feel every imperfection on the road, are they all like this, and will it "bed in" come time?

I’ve had a Tekna auto for 2 years the ride is much choppier on the rear end than the dmax I had previously. Fitting a canopy helped as did lowering the tyre pressures slightly. Best thing is leave some weight in the back.

I put air suspension on mine ,it’s air bag fits inside the coil spring . It’s also allowed us to carry more weight now , I’ve got it registered as an upgrade ,from dvla The carrying capacity was 1047kg’s ? But Now it can carry 1500 kg’s .

It's on 18" tyres, I reduced the pressure a bit but made no difference. It has a canopy fitted, I might put some weight in the bed to see if it makes any difference, it certainly was better towing a trailer with some weight in it.

What's the cost of the air bag conversion?

Does that not invalidate the warranty?

Quite a few companies do it .I’ve got a manual one ,to air Valves on side of the Towbar, I carry a little air compressor with me so I can up / down The pressure when I require it.

How does it effect the warranty?
I don’t know !been in nearly 3 years ,goes in for its service nothing has been said ,if something did go wrong I just take it out , But if something did go wrong with the warrantee Nissan would wiggle out of it anyway !
