Default Want to level my Ranger

I have a 2001 Ford Ranger XLT

4x4
3 inch body lift

The rear end is higher than the front end

I have the torsion bars but I rather not crank them. I heard it reduces the life of the CV joints and has some risk factors?

Any inexpensive ways to level this truck out?

Thanks!

You can crank them a little bit, it will just make the ride a bit harder. It could probably level it out about an inch.

Would i still need a front end alignment? Besides a rougher ride will it decrease the life span of anything?
