Icon5 Don't know much about sagging suspension, is my front end sagging? (pictures)

Hey ya'll, I want to ask ya'll if from the look of these pictures, is my front end sagging? I noticed that when I look at other rangers their front end is not quite as linear as mine. They form more of a 25 degree or so angle than mine. Is this a problem?

There is a screw at the back end. Do you have any current pictures of your truck form the side and a picture of the whole front?

You can probably just crank up the t-bars a lil and get it level with the rear.

It doesn't really look like it is sagging in the front. That looks about like stock height to me. If you want the front of the truck level with the rear, then crank the torsion bars a bit until you get it where you want it.

your rear end is jacked up to counter heavy loads. just crank the tbars as others have said, or put a leveling kit(idk if they have them for rangers.)

Looks liks a proper stock ride hight to me. It can be adjusted but I never did on mine. I like the front rake style (front slightly lower than the rear)

Its that way to counter the rear weight issues. With mine filly loaded and a motorcycle trailer with a bike on it, mines real close to level.

if you crank on the bars make sure you do them equally. X turns on each side. or youll have side to side issues and possiably front / rear tire wear issues.

Ok so it is stock height and not sagging? That's what I was worried about. Apparently the guy that had it before me did some work and probably has a good set of after market shocks, I replaced the struts not too long ago. What would a front end sag be like?
