I can't recommend those 'all-in-one' shock things, installed them on my Sienna and they clank like mad.
What quick strut brand did you install on your Sienna?

You didn’t ask for advice but the “XREAS delete...” thread linked in my sig may be of interest since I was in the same boat until last December.

I'm running FJ/Moog springs all the way around on 5100's & I love the ride. Firm but not harsh.

My L C A replacements were generic, but matched the shape and everything of stock. So far so good for an old suv.
I'm not sure if it is my KYBs clunking but I'm guessing it's something in my exhaust on the left side. Only bothers me when I have my windows down

Skipping and following cracks in the pavement is a sign of poor alignment. If you have lifted your truck and not got an alignment then that's your tracking issue.

Poor ball joints and tie rod ends don't help either but alignment is the big issue.

Clunking could be a broken exhaust mount. Easy to get under and visually check.

My xreas must be completely shot then. The runner canít even take a speed bump without bottoming out the suspension. Looking at several options for replacement. Icon stage 2 looks nice, but I hear they are horrid at low speeds. I am looking for good on road manners first, and off-road capability second - then a slight lift for aesthetics and functionality off-road.

It's still stock, I ended up replacing the front struts with Monroe since they weren't that expensive. Haven't drove it much yet, but I do have lifetime alignment with Pep Boys, will do that next after replacing the passenger cam bolts (they're seized currently so will have to Sawzall it off).
