01 ranger edge sagging in rear

I have maxed out my torssion bars and added a PA 3" body lift. It looks like my rear sits a little lower than the front. Anyone have this problem and what did you do?

First of all, you shouldn't "max" out your T bars. As far as lifting the rear, Chevy drop shackles or add a leafs are the only things you can do...

Get the Pro Comp EXP-13120 they will lift the rear about 2". Those helper springs won't lift it at all.

I have the first set you listed. I am also adding shackles because my top weighs down the back quite a bit.

the exact. It was a tiny bit difficult due to the rust factor. other wise very easy. I had to grind off the centering bolt. setting the body back down to the axel was a bit tricky(need two people 1 to lower the jack and 1 to a line it) http://www.therangerstation.com/tech...d_A_Leafs.html this is exactly the way i did it.

I didn't of course i couldn't either. to much rust. It comes with two sets of center bolts/pins. Use the pair that fits the best. Remember to put alittle grease on the ends to keep it from squeaking.
