3'' PA body lift on 1995 Ranger, Level as well?

I just got a 1995 Ranger and I'm looking to do the 3'' PA body lift.
I am curious on whether this is 3'' all around? I am getting the impression it is but as of now my front end sits a bit lower than the rear. Does this lift account for balancing that out or just lift all around 3'' and leave it off balance.

Thanks in advance, been a lurker since before I got the ranger and finally making a post.
Stoked to deck it out as much as I can as I am just a sophmore in college on a low budget.
Appreciate the help!

It just lifts the body off the frame 3" all around. It will not change the suspension which is where your rake (front end lower then rear) is coming from.

Thanks for the speedy reply.

That makes sense. With that being the case, what should I combo with the Pa body lift to even it out? New coils? If so which ones?
If coils are would work, would any other things need to be done to accompany the coils that would level the truck with the body lift.

If coils are not the answer, what would be? Anything easy?
Sorry for so many questions, just seeking knowledge!
Thanks

Yeah. Okay, the body lift and front coil spacers seem to be the way to go.
These are some prices I've found. Anyone know any cheaper spacers cause it seems to only be a bit more expensive for new coils.

2'' Front Coil Spring Lift
Superlift - $185
