Default leveling expo springs

I'm planning on swapping in expo leafs on my 2002 ex cab and I was wondering what people are doing to level their expo swapped rangers?

I'd really prefer not adding torsion keys if I could

No need to add keys, simply crank your stock bars.

I ran expo leafs, 2" lift shackles, and no lift block with a healthy torsion bar crank and that left me with 1.5-2" of rake.

You should be able to get 1-2" out of them.
