Driver side 1" lower then passenger side

I recently installed 5100's. While I was installing them I kind of noticed how the one side was lower withthe stock shocks. Now I clearly see almost a full inch difference in height. I have the shocks set at 2.5".
Im thinking it has some thing to do with the whole suspension and not the new Bilstiens. If any one knows what i should be looking at to find what could be causing this it would be appreciated. I will post pics if it could be helpful. Also my driver side wheel is cambered a lot more then the passenger side. The ride is fine. I was possibly thinking a 1/4" spacer would solve this but i heard you should not use spacers with the billys.

very common. it's called taco lean. It's due to your constant weight on the driver side, battery, gas tank, etc

a lot of people run an additional spacer or crank their adjustables up a notch on the driver side,
