    I have a 97 2wd limited 4Runner that I recently replaced the ball joints, struts, rear shocks/springs, etc..
    I used the recommended replacement parts but now the front end sits slightly higher than the rear. I have driven the car for about s month hoping the front end would settle and lower but it didn’t.
    Any recommendations on how to make it level?

    Sounds like the rear suspension is tired. You might want to look at replacing your rear coils and shocks.

    Yes I replaced the rear shocks and springs but the front still sits a little higher. I was wondering if a taller rear spring would help
