did you switch the rear to coils or simply swap the rear shock and leave the plug disconnected?

This is my biggest dilemma right now. I'm looking at putting SR5 OEM Coils in to replace the Air Suspension but I'm wondering if it will throw codes to the computer making things worse if the air system is unplugged.

I'm assuming this is going to be a high interest topic as multiple people I've come across are saying their air bags have begun to leak.

Sorry I just saw this thread again.

I only switched the shocks and left the shock plugs disconnected. Shocks are not leaking and it still rides great. No regrets with going this route at this time. I halfway expected the airbags to destroy the 5100 shocks but I’ve been pleasantly surprised they are working great.

The airbags are still on the vehicle and work without any problems. If I get an airbag problem I will definitely do the coil swap.

I just installed some front 5100 shocks on my 2011 Sequoia Platinum. No lights on from not having the front AVS sensors not plugged in. I found this set of 5100's locally with only 8,000 miles from a tundra. Only $300 including new springs and top mounts. Now I need to sell the rear 5100's, and buy some that fit my Sequoia. Picked up these slightly used Fuel wheels and Toyo AT II's for only $900 out of Tucson, plus $200 for shipping. $110 for 4 wheel alignment. All in for about $1,500, less after I sell my factory wheels/ tires.

Hey, that looks good. Can you tell me what you ended up doing for the rear suspension?

I have 5100's on the front and on the Rear of my 2011 Platinum. Right now I have tricked the rear airbag sensor to achieve the lift. I want to get another 3 inches bringing my total lift to 6 inches. It will require a custom spacer to go above the rear airbag mount. I have been doing a lot of research and that is the only way I can see to do it while keeping the stock airbag set up and functionality.

5100'2 all the ay around. On the front, I have them on the second notch. You can use the shocks to achieve the lift or you can use a 3 inch rev tech spacer.

For the rear, it is super simple all you have to do is adjust the airbag sensor it takes a few minutes and a 10mm wrench. I put 5100's on the rear to get a smoother ride.

Now it rides like a Cadilac.

Let me know if you want more pictures.

Love the Sequoia Steve. Could you please post more pic? Also, how is the ride with the airbag sensors moved compared to stock?
