Yet another mild lift post for a 2021 ORP

So I just picked up my '21 ORP and want a mild lift. Due to the fact that this is my daily, I drive this all over the place for my business and because I have a family, my ideal lift would be right around 1.75-2" in front (leveling) and another .75-1" in the rear.

I'm already pretty dead set on the Bilstein 6112/5160 or 5100 with Eibach 1" springs in the rear but everywhere I'm reading is showing that it's really around 1.5" in the rear since 4runners are light in the back. I know it's only a half inch but much of the reason of doing my lift is to remove much of the rake (still want a little). I'll also be running stock 265 ATs to retain as much MPG and comfort as possible.

I don't want to use spacers. I did that leveling kit with my '05 4Runner and the ride was harsh. When I got my '21, my wife even commented how much better it drives than my '05 so I want to retain as much of that comfort with some mild off road capabilities as well as having it sit a little better/higher than stock.

Has anyone used the Eibach 1" in the rear and had it stay at 1"? I've read you can use the '03-'09 Eibach 1" spring but I don't want to jerry rig it since It's a CPO under warranty and I'll be spending a decent amount on this lift. Any advice (and especially pics with your setup) is greatly appreciated.

The variable weight is in the back. Empty, it should ride higher.

I just got a 19' TRD OR and I'm going to go with the Bilstien kit as well after doing extensive research. I have heard nothing but good reviews without any real difficulties concerning the installation.

A .75" spacer in the rear only will do nothing to your ride and drive. Don't know what was up with your previous one.

Perfect, thanks. I'm almost positive that's what I'm going with.

Has anyone used the Eibach 1" in the rear and had it stay at 1"?
You can run a single 1.2" billet spacer up front and achieve a 2" lift up front without changing how it drives.
You can run the Eibach 1" rear spring and get 1.5" of lift on a 2wd and 7/8" lift on a 4wd
The rear of the 4wd sits higher, i would venture to bet the springs are different, but the 4wd is taller front and back versus a 2wd.

I have a 1.7" spacer up front and 1" eibach springs in the rear and my 4wd TRD sport is absolutely dead nuts level and rides barely different than stock. Maybe slightly firmer, but i suspect this is because i changed where the piston is inside the shock, since the pistons are further down in their stroke, they are likely in a position that reduces oil flow because shocks are made to reduce oil flow once they get to their topped out or bottomed out position, this helps slow the shaft speed down and keeps the shock from bottoming out. My setup gave me exactly 2.5" up front and 7/8" in the rear lift and my vehicle is absolutely dead nuts level.
