Hello everyone , I would like some advice on how to make the rear of my 04 xlt ranger 4x4 level with the front since im not looking for a lift and adding bigger tires.

Flipping the hangers in the rear. I heard its like a 2+ inch drop so...I dont know if youd be level then. Dont know what your current difference is

You can always crank your bars to bring the front up like an inch.
