I have wandered about this too. What about people like me who dont want to turn my torsion bars all the way out because they ride like ****? Where could we get blocks to level the back with the front?

If I had an STX I would lower the rear to match the front.

Search how to flip your rear shackles. We answered your question. Sometimes called a 'shackle flip'. Shackle flip cost probably a tops of $50 and if you're good with a grinder, it's almost free...all you gotta buy is bolts and nuts. Or just do the DJM 2/3 kit. (See your other threads)
