Got an 03 Sequoia, Looking for new front shocks since mine are shot. I'm looking for something with a 1.75 to 2 inch front lift just to level the front with the back height. I'm going to be running 31.7 inch tires. Any advice or ideas? Should I bother leveling it?

I did my 2007 SR5 just that using Bilsteins 5100 front and back and leveled it evenly. Smooth ride!!

If you are running stock rears, as mentioned....I’d go adjustable 5100’s on the front. I wanted as level as possible....and went 5100’s. This was over 3 years ago and it’s still perfect. I Set them to the second ring from the bottom for a .65" front lift. My goal all along was to keep it looking fairly stock with a modest lift. With the 5100's, my rake was under .75"...in other words, my rear now sits a little over half an inch or so higher higher than the front. This was exactly what I was looking for since my factory rake was 1.5 inches.
Here’s a pic of my 07....the first pic was the day I installed the 5100’s and the second is as it is today...they have held up nicely and it still looks/drives great.
Best,
Thriller

I also recommend the Bilstien 5100's, installed them about a month ago on my 01 Tundra put on clip number 4, gave me a 2" Lift, reused the OEM Springs, very satisfied with the look and ride 👍🏻

That's what I meant to say Bilsteins 1500.

Totally agree I used the 5100s all the way around on my 2003 sequoia and the ride is impeccable compared to before.

I would recommend changing the rack and pinion bushings also while your at it.
