Haven't heard of anyone trying this before on a Sequoia, but I took a chance and got the Bilstein 6112 front strut kit for Gen2 Tundras. Comes with 2.6 inch diameter shocks and larger/longer/softer Eibach springs.Did you get new spring with the bilstein strut?

Set them on the lowest perch which Bilstein says is supposed to give 0.75 inch lift. The Tundra guys usually go for the higher settings to level their trucks. Hope my Sequoia settles some more because it now has a 2 inch front lift and is sitting 1 inch nose high. If I had researched this more I would have known that the lowest setting gives 1.5 to 2 inches of lift. See, for example: 6112 Height and Settling - TundraTalk.net - Toyota Tundra Discussion Forum. Now I'm faced with decisions about how to get back to level - rear coil spring spacers or that steel bumper with winch? (LOL)
Ride is so much smoother with these struts. Now I know why I never noticed a difference in the ride when I tried different shocks and coil inserts in the rear. Most of the stiffness was coming from the front. Pavement imperfections are smoothed out and it no longer feels like you are going to break something if you don't slow down for parking lot speed bumps.
Fit is fine, but be aware that if anything goes wrong it probably would not be warranted. (Use on other than recommended vehicles is one of several Bilstein warranty restrictions.) WarrantyThanks for the info. I didn't know the 2nd gen tundra bilstein 6112 can be fitted to the sequoia. I was looking at the kit, but wasn't sure if it will fit.
I imagine that the bumper in NYC would help you clear out trafficMy Seq is no where near as "AWESOME" as the one's above. One simple thing I did was add this 2ndary TPMS. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01FM6WZZ4/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I like to be able to monitor my tire pressures for each tire from inside the car. It fits on the stem so I am hoping a) it does not throw off balance and b) it does not leak. But it is cool to see all 4 tires in the car (something I had on my 04 VW). I'm doing a long distance drive next week, so we will see how it performs on trips.
I WISH I had that bumper up here in NYC -- do parking sensors fit on it?
Thank you. I have the stock Platinum air suspension. Looking closer at the pic, I think I left it in the high setting after unhitching the trailer. Driving around the back is pretty much leveled with the front.DSCLegend, I like your wheel / tire setup a lot. Have you done any suspension work and if so what? I think your ride height front and back look great and is exactly what I'm looking for.
