Been discussed numerous times in this very thread. It is due to the "ranger lean" The driver side is like that due to gas tank and driver weight. Perfectly normal.

so when its lifted and you tighten the bolt and the tire drops a little.. is that the distance it is when its lowerd or does it compress? like if it drops a inch in the air will it be a inch higher when you set it down?
