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!

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Thanks for the post and for the info! Stance is awesome! I am hoping to do something similar to improve off roading and towing.

Quick question for the group... If I were to start with just the springs and keep saving for the 5100s would that still make a big difference with towing and sag or do I need to just save and eventually get it all at once? Thanks everyone!

The springs don't require shocks you will just get .80 more rake as the 5100s raise the front but not the back IMO the biggest towing improvement is the rear springs. you can find the yellow Bilsteins on craigslist. guys take them off new trd trucks not sure that you would notice the difference compared to 5100s for towing.
