Is it possible to fit 32's after a 2" lift using the torsion bars?

This is my truck right now. 2006 Sport

I would like to get rid of the 20" rims i have right now and put some nice mudders on it. Hopefully the torsion cranking will level it out.

Does anyone have any real-world data to report on re: CV wear over time after doing this? We always see guys saying they lifted it but never any reports back on this extra wear.

So looked at my torsion bars today and discovered this. I have a 2003 EDGE 2wd. My driver side is maxed out. While my passenger side still has about 1/2 inch left. Truck sits level. I know it's due to heavy gas tank. Ok, so now my question is this, the rear of my truck on both sides is 2 inches taller than the front. Is this normal? With the front on one side being maxed out?
The front on both sides measures 33 1/2 inches
While the back on both sides is 35 1/2 inches
Shouldn't it sit level to the back with a maxed torsion bar crank?

sounds like your tbars are sagging and worn out...a little bit of rake is normal...and when i cranked my bars/installed my rear shackles i kept that rake in it...what kind of tbars do you have

I'm not sure. As far as I know everything is stock. How would I go about fixing the "sag"

replace the bars...ford had 3 sets of tbars they put on the rangers...F(weakest) , B(mid range), and 1(strongest)...all the FX4 lvl 2s came with 1 bars as well as several FX4 off road(including mine) and some plain jane 4x4s
