Default 98 ranger torsion bars

i was going to go out and just give them a slight crank to level the truck, but when i went underneath the truck i noticed one was fully cranked and the other was normal. i dont have pictues but could the key just be off one turn on the hex bolt on the torsion bar?

Not sure exactly what you're asking but it's possible the previous owner cranked the driver sold torsion bar to offset the Ranger lean that happens over the years.
