Level ceiling?

I have leveled my floors using 2x6s but I also need to do the ceilings. There is a 3" difference between the side of the house and the middle (this was corrected in the crawl space using piling).
question is should I use the same process or can I use 1x6s since the ceiling has to have strapping.
Can I instead just level the strapping and not the joists?

Strapping is often used to level out a ceiling but 3" is a lot. I'd probably sister onto the high joists to bring them down to level and shim the rest when adding the strapping.
