The front measures 33.5 "from the ground to the fender and 15" from the ground to the rocker what is your measurements cranked and ones that have never been cranked. no big deal if they were

from looking at your avatar pic (the larger one in your profile page) i can tell your truck's torsion bars have not been cranked. cranked torsion bars will bring the front end higher than the rear, if maxed. (at least, mine did. don't max them, though)

I just picked up an 05 sport trac and some one some time cranked the bars. No big deal but the alignment was off a bit and it wasn't level side to side.

I do not think that they were cranked. I cranked my t bars 1 inch, and I measured from the ground to the fender and it was 34 inches.

All you have to do is look at the lower arms. Are they straight across like:

or are they like:
