How much can I expect front end to settle

I installed the following on my 2005 with my goal to simply level the truck.

Front - Bilstein 5100 adjustable (on lowest setting)
Front - OME 885 Coil
Rear - Bilstein 5100
Rear - Stock Coils
Wheels - 2018 4 Runner 17" wheels
Tires - BFG 275/70/17

As it sits, the front is just under an inch higher than the rear. Although it may not appear so in the pic, the stance looks awkward. How much can I expect the front to settle over time? I realize I could lift the rear some but I really don't want additional height. I was surprised that the Bilsteins on the lowest setting elevated the front so much.

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.

Good question. I don't recall what I read that caused me to go with the OME's but I believe I'm going to put stock back on. The 885's ride as hard as a rock as well. I appreciate the reply.

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.
