Kyb strut plus

I have a 2005 t4r sr5 2wd and wanted to know If the kyb strut plus lifts the front? Not looking for a lift but hearing that it gives a lift upfront. Does anyone know how much? Don't want the front to be higher then the rear. I want to replace all 4 ahocks.

Thanks

Nice t4r! It looks good but I'm thinking would it be higher up front on a 2wd? Dont want a reverse rake

i think it will be ok with the 2wd. it takes about 500-1000 miles to get it to settle & after that its about a 1.5-2" lift at the front fender lip. it should sit close to level after.

i just did all 4 shocks on my 08 with worn out xreas, im happy with the small lift & they ride surprisingly good.

FYI- I'm not familiar enough with the kit to know for certain, but the "lift" could just be result sagging oem suspension.

based on lower mile stock 4th gens ive seen in person & looking at youtube vids when they were new or close to new, the KYB's definitely give a little bit of lift in the front. & thats likely because the kybs have 10% stiffer springs than stock. they are the same part # for FJ cruisers & a popular trick to get a little lift is to use a FJ shocks/springs.
