Someone posted a better method of measuring ride height, from the lip of the fender flare to the center of the wheel, instead of too the ground. Doing it this way eliminates any difference the tire size will make. The center of the wheel will always be at same point in relation to the body, regardless of the tire size. But a bigger tire will raise the vehicle and add to the vehicle lift.
When I replaced my shock/struts with Blistien 4600, original springs, so no lift, my front was raised to level out the vehicle. I liked it, but over the next couple of days it settled out to have the forward rake again. But NOT as bad as when it had worn struts and strut mounts and spring pads.
I looked up the Sensen quick struts, they claim to be stock ride height. NOT like the Blistien 5100 that at its lowest setting will raise the front 3/4". So its possible the strut might NOT be what they claim. Its also possible that the lift kit might NOT do as it claims and raises it different.
Its also possible the new strut/strut mount/spring pads need to settle out and come down to their final ride height. Which my blistien 4600 did after 2 days or so of driving. I'd wait a couple of days of driving and measure again, hopefully that is all that is needed to settle out the front and get it to level.
I suspect as the suspension parts wear the front sags a bit, giving even more of forward rake, struts don't provide any real force to push up and raise a vehicle, but they control the suspension better to NOT dip as much over bumps that might let it hold at higher height, as well as fresh mounts and pads compress less, so I get the impression the Commander might sag a tiny bit up front with suspension wear and get even more forward rake, then freshening up the front suspension raises just a tiny bit to less that forward rake to what it was new.
