No more saggy butt!

Hi Guys

I’ve been creeping on here for a bit gathering idea on how to improve my 2008 sequoia 2wd for towing. My solution was 5100 all the way around and Dobson springs in the rear I had airbags ready to go but figured go all in!

Nice stance. Time for bigger tires.

Can you post a link from where you purchased these springs from?

Re: No more saggy butt!

Looks good! What height setting did you put the front bilstein 5100 on? And how much lift in the rear with new springs?

Re: No more saggy butt!

How much did those set you back? I may be in the market for a set for my 2006, in place of my problematic AHC suspension.

Re: No more saggy butt!

I put the front on the lowest setting 3/4 of inch lift . The back was 1 3/4 lift, I would say I have about an inch of rake. Due to the stiffer spring, I'm inches higher in the rear when the 4k camper is connected.

330$ shipped. They were difficult to install a very heavy spring!

Re: No more saggy butt!

What's your tongue weight with the trailer? That's one of the things that I am worried about if I swap out my AHC suspension on my 06 Sequoia.

Re: No more saggy butt!

Hi,

A bag of groceries is usually enough to sag a Toyota Suv in my experience. ok that's a bit of an exaggeration.. Tounge weight is 300 lbs a bit more or less. mine was low in the back unloaded not much but once you loaded and hooked up it sure was.

Re: No more saggy butt!

It rides good, better than before unloaded and MUCH better loaded.

That's great! Where did you get them? I couldn't find an application for the 2nd Gen Sequoia. Do you have a part number? They're Australian, right?
