Default torsion bar question

I was under my truck changing the fuel filter today, and I noticed that the screws which adjust the torsion bars are at different positions. the driver's side had a bunch of room from full crank, but the pass. side looked like it was screwed in a lot farther. should they be at the same distance, or is this ok? the truck does sit level to the eye, I've never actually measured it, though.

ok thanks I guess I need to start looking for a std. cab short bed frame from those years cause it will most definitely be a lot easier than swapping all the mounts over to my frame
