Default Intresting freakin day!!!!!!!!!

So my moms freind left last night and didnt tie his trailer ramps down he didnt know but i found one in yard then called him an he asked me to look for the other one on my way to school so i see it an everythings really wet around here i pull off the road and my brakes locked an i slide i thought my brakes didnt work but eddie told me i was just sliding an i ended up i a ditch no body damage but. I ran down the side of the road threw the ramp in the truck an put her in 4low ended up having to floor it so i wasnt just slideing along the bank of it intresting morning for me then i went to school now my questions are every time i use 4wd theres a weird burning kinda smell i guess you could call it it might be like mud on somthing hot idk and my buddys 2000 f150 with 20,000 miles has started squeaking like the ball joints or somthing we turned the torsion bars up about a month ago an i think the guy turned em too much will lowering them to level fix it? And he never got a tire alignment?

Wow. My head hurts after trying to read that.
I think I see 4-5 different questions/problems in there about 2 different trucks?

Ok I'm not an English professor myself but your post is hard to follow. Sorry I can't be of help but, I would say your buddy should start with an alignment. I would also lower it back down a bit.

Btw - be careful when you lower the truck. It will be faster.
