Right side one inch higher then left

I installed my 2" spacers last week and install went pretty smoothly. Now that everything is back together and on the ground my passenger front is 1" higher than the driver side. Rear is sitting at 41 inches on both sides and front driver side is also at 41 inches. Passenger side is at 42 inches
When I put the coils back in I made sure that the end was butted up against the stops on the piece that connects to the axle. I forgot to mark the coils when I pulled them, so did I put the passenger side in wrong? The only reason I don't think I did is because the end of the coil is against the stop just like on the drivers side.

Every truck is different. Like you may have read in those other links provided I've measured trucks at much as 1" low on the drivers side right on the dealer lot. The difference between an empty fuel tank and full fuel tank can make a 3/8" difference by itself.

you don't really mark the coils but you need to make sure the spring end is sitting at the mounts "stop" both the top and bottom implement this "stop"

typically you rotate the loose spring until it hits the lower stop the top you rotate the isolator/spacer until it hits the stop then lower the truck to capture the settings

never worry about the measurements on a truck that was just jacked up drive it a bit
so the suspension can settle

if all above was done properly and your still not level u can check a few other items
but like mentioned if it's not body mounts or a bound suspension it is a characteristic of these trucks and can be dialed in to level with shims under the coils and leafs if desired
