It should. Im thinking of my truck too i forgot yours is probably different. If you have like 3 people, you can loosen them all, have two adjust it, and you tighten, but if its just you or one person, just do one side at a time.

Yeah its still not bad looking. Mines not level either lol. For a 94, i think you can put some f150 coils up front. I wish there was an easy way to raise my front, my tbars are maxed and i still have rake cause of my rear shocks but it looks kind of cool and i like the added lift in the back even though i dont like the looks
