Re: Suspension, Tires, Lift Update (2005 Sequoia)
It just fits! A perfect fit in the garage...the first time after the tires and lift I was holding my breath! So happy with this setup, it exceeds my expectations. It sits perfectly, this post from another Tundra Solutions member helped me quite a bit: "A 5100 on the top setting with factory coils will match perfectly with 2862 rear coils in terms of lift (2.5" up front and 2" rear, reducing factory rake just a bit)." There was very little settle; the 5100s are extremely beefy and so far on very bumpy/rocky gravel roads with big potholes the Bilsteins have eaten those bumps for breakfast, it is very smooth. My significant other (who is very picky) loves them too, she says that "it feels like floating" but not in a seasick way, very stable. Kids in the back seats over long trips do not get seasick, which is a big thumbs up and testament to the stability of the 5100s and 2862s. I have already taken a long highway trip as well and even at high speeds (85MPH) the ride is extremely smooth and balanced. I feel that this option is ideal for the Sequoia and the price was a ridiculously good value. Thanks so much for the recommendations. 4wheelparts wouldn't initially sell me the FJ Cruiser Bilsteins (for rear) saying that they were not for my vehicle. I can attest that they fit perfectly. The installer said that on the top settings (both front and rear) combined with the 2862s, that the height was absolutely perfect as if made for this application. At first with the lift and the larger tires I was taken aback (it seemed quite a lot higher than I had anticipated). After a few days I began to absolutely love it, now I find the height I had before way too low (the setup now is the way I always wanted it). Look is aggressive but not overdone at all, I have had a ton of comments and I feel very confident for my extended roadtrip and backcountry camping this summer.
