    How much can I expect front end to settle

    I haven't looked a lot for rear springs but I think the minimum is about 2", you can use factory 100 springs or the OME 2862's. I also haven't been able to locate a 1" rear spring spacer. The rear 5100's they market for these trucks are actually too short, the 4600's are about 3" longer fully...

    Potential Owner

    Congrats, I haven't even had my 05 for two weeks and I'm loving it. I chose an SR5 version partly to avoid the rear air suspension and the potential to fail. Definitely do a Carfax, also there is quite a few other sources of information on vehicle history online. Do a search for 'free vehicle...

    Here We Go!

    I’ve used Osram Night Breaker Laser headlights in my Tundra for a few years now. They’re bright as hell but they last two years like they’re on a fucking timer. The headlights in the Sequoia were shit on my long drive home, they seemed dim and the right side light was pointing all up at a wonky...

    Here We Go!

    Thanks for the response, I was beginning to think that I was talking to myself in here. It doesn't touch, it's just very close. It barely tucks under that lip on the A pillar.

    Here We Go!

    As promised, wiper detail. Tundra’s and Sequoia’s use little 19” blades. Years ago while shopping for new blades on my Tundra I noticed that there was a lot of real estate on the windshield for larger blades. And since blades are mostly the same cost regardless of size I figured, why not...

    How much can I expect front end to settle

    I really like the look of a simple leveled Sequoia on 32's. I'm going a similar route. Your truck is looking good, even if it is a little nose high.

    Here We Go!

    I took it in to the dealership today to have the frame inspected. They ran the VIN first and found that it had a side curtain airbag recall that needed to be addressed before anything else. Can't even throw it up on the lift, apparently. Ok, whatever. They'll need the truck for 6 hours to do...

    How much can I expect front end to settle

    Sorry I don't have an answer for you but I doubt they will settle an inch. I'm curious as to why you didn't just use 5100's with the stock springs? Third notch brings it up to level. Simple.

    Here We Go!

    Today I installed the K&N filter that I had on my Tundra before I went to the aFe cold air intake (I knew I kept it for a reason!) and also transferred over all of the other random junk like the ice scraper, maps, center console crap, etc that was in my Tundra. I’ve had that truck for nearly 14...

    How many miles on your tree? Any major issues other than general maintenance?

    Just picked up a 2005 with 256k (now 258k after driving it home). It's in great shape but I will go through everything gradually, I want it to last a lot longer.

    When was my timing belt changed?

    If you get a carfax report it might show up. The first belt change was on my carfax history, the second was just a sticker in the engine compartment.

    Here We Go!

    Not a whole lot to report today, I power washed 2,000 miles worth of road grime off the body and chassis, then took it down to the local dealer to make an appointment to get the frame checked out. I found some level ground and measured the difference in ride height between the front and rear to...

    Here We Go!

    Naturally, I’m thinking about what to do next. I’m thinking the smart thing to do before dumping money in it would be to have the frame inspected. Is there anything I should know before taking it in?

    Here We Go!

    I’m exhausted but I’m home. The truck did great, the tires were awful. Lookout Pass from Montana to Idaho was an adventure, to say the least.

    Here We Go!

    I am loving it! This afternoon I was in the middle of nowhere on a tiny two lane highway in the southeastern corner of Montana, I missed my turn so I made a u-turn, totally mis-judged it, went a little wide and ended up sliding down the snowy embankment. Put it in 4 lo with the center diff lock...

    Here We Go!

    Ok! So I have to admit, even though I’ve owned a lot of cars (I have always been a “car guy”), buying something site unseen with that many miles and that far from home had me a little apprehensive, even if it is a Toyota. But so far it feels really solid. It definitely could use new shocks and...

    Here We Go!

    Hello all, I write this from an Airbnb somewhere north of Chicago, about 9:30pm local time. I’ll go into more detail as this thread progresses, but the short story is that I bought a dead stock (for now) 2005 Sequoia SR5 4x4 with 256k on the clock sight unseen about three weeks ago. I’m picking...

    Popping noise from the front end after upgrading tires

    I had the exact same noise in my ‘00 2WD Tundra after leveling the front with 5100’s a few years ago. When you raise the front suspension the sway bar end links are now too short and it puts them in a bad angle with the sway bar. Mine ended up snapping two brand new end links. I picked up links...

    Tire, Wheel & Suspension Setup Rubbing Question...

    Yeah... I saw that up top. I was quoting/asking desertrunner04 ;)
