Help passenger front higher than driver side!

Ok so I had a 2.5" coil spacer leveling kit installed andi just noticed my front looks out of wack, I measured it and the passenger side is 1.5" higher than the driver side! It's brand new what the hell do I do! I just saw in the new diesel power that they installed a 6" pro comp lift on a new f250 and they even noted the drivers side was an inch lower! What do I do!

Make sure the installer oriented the springs on the spacers correctly. Either way I would take it back to them. One side shouldn't be higher.

I just checked the springs, the end of the top of the spring is set in the notch of the rubber spacer and the bottom of the coil the end is at the notch there too, I had it aligned and the adjustable track bar was adjusted so I don't know what else to do

Spacer kits are pretty simple and straight forward. Other than what I already mentioned, not sure what else it could be. I'm sure your truck was on a level surface when you measured, so I won't even go there. If anyone else has any ideas, I would like to hear them too. If you paid someone to do the work, I would take it back.

Help passenger front higher than driver side!

Assuming it was the same height on both sides before the level, then I would have to go with the springs aren't seated right on both sides. You can jack it up all the way and spring the spring ( if they are not seated right) or take it back.

So just jack the front up on the frame and see if I can reposition the springs?

My 08 and my '11 were both about an inch low on the drivers side. I assume that it is due to the additional weight on the drivers side. Fuel tank, DEF tank, steering gear, etc.......

I remember seeing a 1" block in Fords part system for the rear to compensate. My parts guy says that he never remembers selling one but that he assumed that it was for customers that complained about it. I measured a few '12's at the dealer one day and they we all a bit low on the drivers side and that was with almost empty tanks.
