I do both. Front squats are more quad focused and back squats more hamstring, glutes, etc. Obviously both hit everything but the focus feels different to me.

High bar back squats are a staple in my routine every week. Front bar gets added in for 8 weeks and then swapped out for something else for 8 weeks (like barbell lunges or something like that).

I do think front squats help round out your leg training.
