    who do you all insure threw?

    Geico. I have shopped around and can't find anything cheaper. Hagarty sucks if you want to use your truck as a......truck.

    Assuming the nut hasn't come off and been replaced with a newer version that isn't staked, the original nuts are staked on two sides to flats on the stub axle. You have to carefully cut the staked portions of the nut off in order to get the nut off without substantial damage to the top threads.

    One six industries

    Most people can't fix the simple problems of a Datsun in their new vehicles either (eg starter, alternator). ECU's rarely go bad, and sensors that are required to actually run generally give feedback and set CEL codes if something goes wrong, which you can read with a very inexpensive reader. It's more the BS stuff like evap codes that become a headache to run down, but those aren't going to leave you stranded anyways.

    Disc Brake Conversion on 71 521

    On later Nissan trucks (eg D21/hardbody) it's attached to the rear axle via spring & lever/bracket. I don't know what Nissan was smoking with a valve sensing "level" that would be affected by grade & braking forces, not just bed load.

    So if you are braking downhill the rear brakes become less effective?

    NLSV doesn't sense level, it senses the distance between the rear end to bed/frame. When the distance between the bed/frame & axle is reduced by bed load, more bias is given to the rear brakes.
