Default Trying to get some front end lift

Ok so i have an 01' ford ranger edge 4x4 4.0L SOHC and my ass end is waaaay up there. My #1 bars are cranked pretty hard and it still sits way up there. I think this is because i have load leveling coil shocks in the back. Is there any way i could lift the front up so its level? Could i put longer shocks up there or something? Or if i got a 3 inch body lift would that level it out?

Are your torsion bars maxed? If so, your only option left is a lift for the front. Either that or remove those coil shocks and see if that drops the rear down.

A body lift only lifts the body from the frame. Your problem is in the suspension, so the truck would still be awkwardly high in the rear.

I thought it would probably still sit awkward cause it was suspension not body. But yeah, they are pretty maxed out, i cant really get more than 1.5 to 2 turns on the drivers bolt. I like the added lift in the rear so i guess my only option is the front end super lift. Which kinda sucks cause i will never have money for it. And even then id probably need to lift the back some and it would just be all weird and shit. If only rangers were easy to lift like older trucks!
