Default have they already been cranked?

i have suspicion that the previous owner tbar cranked my ranger. do any of you know by the pics given if my trucks tbars have been cranked. i cant tell. thank you and the answer is very important. ***measurements are from the base part where the bolt comes through that plate thing TOO the top head of the bolt.

Mine were like that I am the only owner

They are like that due to ranger lean. To compensate for driver and fuel tank

You will have to crank one more than the other to get each side to match. Kinda a pain in the butt.

You dont have to keep the lean if you dont want.

Mine is perfectly even on both sides.

Do you remember how many turns on each bolt it was to level out the front end

Dont recall.

Meassure the back and start cranking your front. now you wont get it the exact same but you can get it pretty damn close.

Mine was close enough you had to measure to tell the front was just a tad lower.
