Leveling A Yakima Roof Rack On A 2020 Toyota Highlander


Ordered the crossbar mounts as suggested on the website. Sky tower with pads and adapter for 55” HD bars. However the roof slopes toward the back. Although the first crossbar is level, the second crossbar is slightly lower and tilted as the roof line s toward the back. What’s the remedy to bring up the rear and level up .??

There are two separate issues at play. The roof of the 2020 Highlander does have a slight slope as it goes to the rear of the vehicle, but you will not be able to bring the rear crossbars up to the level of the front crossbars. This is a fixed point rack so the difference in levels should barely be perceptible on your roof rack. The second issue deals with the pitch adjustment of the towers. You can adjust the level of the crossbars to make them uniform with this adjustment. You have
12º of adjustment.
