I bought a 2003 TRD Sequoia and the front end looked too high. I didn't care as i was going to replace the shocks, bushings and steering rack. I bought factory sized front struts and after the work its still the same height. Which is much higher than any other 2WD Sequoia. Any ideas why? I don't see anything on the suspension that looks after market either. And there isn't much travel to the bump stops, so a shorter strut looks like it would be a problem too. Thanks for any help.

Could the wheels and/or tires be different sizes? If the truck was previously lifted, there might be a front diff drop/spacer, but I don't think it would be that drastic.

It's hard to tell but that seems like quite a bit of daylight between the bumpstop and frame. Looks like considerably more than my '02 Tundra had. I'd suspect that the springs are wrong.

yeah. From my research the Monroe Struts come with springs that are too tall. Some other people have said to use Bilstein 4600 with the Toyota springs. That's my next project. At least Orielys will let me return the Monroes. Luckily the guy there had the same problem with the same struts, so he understood.
