    Just wanting to throw in a point in my experience with SPCs:

    Both your upper ball joints are clocked at different orientations. Most alignment guys won’t touch those. So it is best to have them clocked at the same position (the one you believe will do most good, this takes some research), and then taking it to the shop. After that a decent alignment tech just needs to get it in the greens after that. Caster can be high, just realize that that will not help with your rubbing issue.

    I was researching spacers for my 1st Gen Sequoia and found this thread. Kinda old I know, but I'm running 285/70/17s on stock wheels and suspension with no rubbing except on the frame at full lock, that's only due to the wider tire, thus my research on spacers.
    Planning on adding some 5100s or similar for a 1" lift in front, and maybe some spacers to get the wheel/tire out a bit.

    From what I can gather the minimum spacer I can use is a 1.25" due to the stock stud length, can anyone confirm that?
    That would fix the inner rub, but probably create outer rub, which the OP was suffering from, so may not be worth it for that reason.

    Trying to find info on the Sequoias is challenging, so the Gen 1 Tundra forums are the best bet for most things since everything is the same underneath, but man, there's so much misinformation in this thread I'm almost scared to ask.

    Not necessarily. You can also run shorter studs as long as the spacer lug nuts have full engagement (or trim/shorten your OEM studs).

    Also some wheels (usually aftermarket) have 'pockets' between the lug holes which would allow clearance of the OEM studs without needed to swap/shorten them, allowing a thinner spacer.


    You'll need to jigsaw/lego together what works for you, your truck and what you feel will work well.

    You can also look at extending the lower control arms, if you have a fabricator you trust to do so. This would push the wheel and tire out, without causing a larger turning arc, which may prevent the outside rub. Of course, this may require longer cv axles if 4x4.

    Yeah, I'll have to go pull the wheels and see if they have the little pockets on the backside. I know the current Tundra TRD wheels have them, so I was able to run a 1" spacer without replacing or trimming the factory studs. I'm on aftermarket wheels on the Tundra now, so no more spacers, but not looking to sink a bunch of money on wheels for the Sequoia just yet. The inner rub is not bad enough for me to go too far on this endeavor, I was just wondering if I could get a 1" spacer on there, which may be the sweet spot for the Sequoia with a mild lift and stock wheels. If not I'll just make sure to give myself plenty of room when turning and avoid full lock, and even still, its just rubber on the frame, nothing to really worry about.

    Thanks for the info, and thanks for not giving me a lesson on wheel bearings and push-ups!

    I have a 1st gen sequoia, but stock wheels and tires so that's not much help. For wheel spacers stick with Borla or spidertrax. The spidertrax aren't terribly expensive so I'd buy set and put them on the front, see how they do and then go from there. If you don't like them, you can sell them for pretty close to what you paid for them.

    My last tundra had a 3 inch lift and spidertrax spacers, but also 265/70/17 tires so no rubbing.

    I've since switched to 6112's up front along with dobinsons rear struts/springs... Installed brand new OEM everything up front, even a brand new rack. Rubbing is almost non existent but it will still rub from time to time depending if the front wheels are up on higher ground vs the rear (think curb or raised driveway)... The shoulder tread of the KO2's have worn lower so I'm sure that's assisting with the rub.

    Still have 2 more notches to go up on the fronts if need be.

    5100's (especially in the rear) are crap on the sequoias. Buy once cry once, don't run 5100s in the back. You'll end up replacing them sooner than later. Go dobinsons for the rear susp.

    Good to know. Do you have aftermarket UCAs as well?
