For single line math, the height of ) is sufficient. If you want larger
heights you can do

\def\bigmathstrut{\vphantom{\big)}} (replace \big by \bigg, \Big, to suit
your need). If you really want something big you can try

\def\bigmathstrut{\vphantom{\frac{\displaystyle\sum_{(}^{)}}{\displaystyle\sum_{)}^{(}}}

Usually things do not grow bigger than this.
