First off this forum has been an unbelieveable source of information for me and the Sequoia that I bought a few months back. I have been driving 4runners for the last 10 years (97, 99, 06) and am new to the Sequoia game. I recently needed to save some money and saw a great deal on an 04 Sequoia Limited that just cracked the 100k mark. New brakes, water pump, timing belt, full service and it was a toyota extended warranty car up until that 100k mark.

Car was in really good shape but I noticed one issue right away that was unusual. The handling was all over the place. Extremely loose and it was a chore to keep it going down one lane. Long story short I hopped on here and found that the ball joint recall had not been performed on the vehicle. Got this done and the problem was markedly better but still not totally fixed. I have been playing with tire pressures to no avail. The dealer I purchased the car from put Fuzion tires on it (think cheap Bridgestone brand) that are 265/70R17. This is not the stock size. I have really pinned it down to Alignment numbers and tires as the culprit. Has anyone else had any issues with this type of thing? I am going to use DJ's numbers (found them on here)on the alignment next time but do i need to look at tires of better quality and right size. This is really driving me crazy so any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
