Default What can I do to level out truck?

I have read the topics on what to do for lifting or BL, but I just want to level my truck out. Right now, my truck's ass is in the air and the front is low. I just want to level it out for cheap. my truck is a 1997 2wd. All suggestions are welcome.

Flipping your rear leaf spring hangers will lower the back some.
