Westcott Design Lift Front Only?

Greetings all. Interested in seeing if anyone has done just the front perch lift utilizing the westcott design lift for the fox suspension. Iíve seen some pics on their site but canít determine if the pics was actually only the front or all 4.
Iím looking to just level up the front and thinking this route looks to be the most promising. PFA.

You are right that the 4Runner is raked, i.e. the front is lower than the rear. Most lift kits raise the front more than the rear to level the vehicle. The difference is about 2" front to rear. Thus, it is OK to lift just the front a bit. I think the 4Runner looks better level.

I don't know about the Westcott lift; I have a different brand leveling kit.

Can I see your setup? I would think how yours is leveled would be similar to what Iím looking for.

I have the Rough Country leveling kit which is a spacer on the top of the front strut (strut is same length and shock travel is the same as OEM) and spacer on the top of the rear springs. Advertised lift was 2.5" front and 1" rear, but I ended up with about 3" front.

Front only would be close to reverse rake, especially if you used the bottom and top piece.
Below is my 2020 with bottom Westcott and Eibach 1" rear coils. (Keep in mind bike rack and loaded roof box as well)

Half inch front spacer should be all you need, will raise front about 1".

Wanted to revisit this thread since some time has passed by.
Anyone else run this front-only lift? I have a 2019 TRD Pro with the Fox shocks and Iím also looking to raise the front a little bit for a slightly more aggressive look.
Any input and/or photos appreciated

Did the front and rear (22 Pro) but started the install with the front. Didn't look too bad, the worse part was that it made the stock 265 tires look small.

Yeah, I was also thinking it would make stock tire sizes look small. I wonder if it will clear 285's now?

Buy the full Wescott lift. The truck looks awesome and the cost of the full kit is only a bit more than the front lift only.
