Default changed struts

I changed to front struts on my 2wd 99 pathfinder. I noticed that the front is slightly higher than the rear. Will it after a while will it settle down a bit. I did not replace the rear shocks yet will that help. thanks for any help.

If it's going to settle I would expect it to settle after a few miles. It could have been the case that everything was sagging due to age and you might have to replace the rear as well

plus 1 on what he said. makes a huge difference adding new suspension parts on an older vehicle.

changing front struts should not affect height. the strut itself doesn't support the weight of the vehicle. the spring does. if you bought aftermarket "quick struts" that come with new springs installed, then yes it could make a difference
same thing for the rear. shocks are not going to cause suspension sag
