If the front is sitting higher and you want the rear to be the same you can either do add a leaf, add blocks or shackles.

.....and if the rear is sitting higher then the front (like an stocker usually does), then crank the T-bars and be done with it.

hmm lower the back?? use an Explorer axle, they are spring under axle, will drop it 5 inches with stock springs, and it should be a bolt in swap, even use the same brakes, go look at an EXplorer in the junkyard and measure it all up,

I believe so. It should be -2in front, and -3in rear making it level. ...i think

BTW I love those STX Rangers, I would add just add the Roush side skirts and a roll pan.
