#1 of 14 Rear end sagging?
Jun 06, 2009 (1:13 pm)
Is it me or does the rear wheels on the '08 SR5 Sequoia look like they bow out? I think the correct term is "Toe-in" but the tire wear looks even. It looks like there is something very heavy the sequoia is hauling but it is empty in the inside. Do the struts need more air or am I just seeing things?

Yes...I have noticed this on my '08 Limited as well...I'm bringing it in this week for my 10K mile service and will ask about it. I have noticed it on all Sequoias I have seen...not just mine!

I guess no one want to talk to new members or I have a big problem and no one wants to tell me about it ---bdk

Not exactly sure what you mean by climbing mode but if any of the wheels are losing traction then the traction control system will kick in and that is what you are hearing. It will sound like your ABS system since that is actually what is happening. You will even hear it when accelerating (especially in 2wd) on gravel or loose surfaces from a stop.

Thank you very much for responding to my note --- I guess when I said climbing mode I meant accelerating on a incline going upgrade. After you said something about gravel I was on a gravel path climbing a hill when I heard the noise. I was just concerned but If I understand you that is a normal noise that I am hearing.
Again thanks you for your help. I found your forum and enjoyed reading the notes here and I just thought I could get some info from people that had the knowledge that I do not have

Yes, it is normal to hear this. It will really be apparent if you find some snow or ice to play on.

#10 of 14 Humming Noise Could be Bad Wheel bearings
Jun 09, 2008 (9:49 pm)
I just would like to share my recent experience.
I had a humming noise from the front end. The noise would start at 35 mph and stay constant on the upshift and down shift. Ruled out transmission or tire problems. My local mechanic and Firestone advised that I had a bad front wheel bearing. I opted to change both front bearings with my local mechanic. We'll after the installation of the new bearings, the noise still remained. My mechanic raise the Sequoia and discovered the rear passenger wheel had some resistance when spinning the wheel. He proclaimed that the rear wheel bearing was bad and that the vibration was running up to the front.
Sure enough after changing the rear wheel bearings and hub assembly, the noise disappeared.
My mechanic stating that in 10 years this was the first time in which the vibration traveled from the rear to the front.
