Default Ride height question

on my 2004 ranger xl the left front wheel to fender height is 5 1/4" but on the front passenger its 6 1/4"

any thoughts, i did put a 1" leveling kit but that raised both sides 1" so it cant be those, plus it did it before i put them on...

anyway it looks even from the front but with a tape measure its off by 1" sometimes 3/4"

any reasons why? i dont suspect its anything to worry about

thats what im thinking, maybe years of drivers on that side along with gas tank have worn that coil more than the other

coil and leafs are fine so i dont think its that, and it hasnt been in a any crashes, more than a fender bender (previous owner)

its just a think they have. Hell even s10's do it, mustangs do it, alot do. Measure with your gas full and empty and it will be different. If you have torsion bars you just gotta have one side cranked more than the other. If coils are kinda screwed wihtout maybe a spacer or something but it really isnt worth it imo
