    The driver side is lower then the passenger side by half inch on flat ground with 1/4 tank. Normal?

    Did you bounce it up and down then remeasure? Mine is 1/8 difference, but I am not worried about that. 1/2 may just be a spring is a tad weaker.

    Im thinking its a weak spring, but im hoping to replace the springs with the OME 881 adding and little lift and then lifting the back with new leafs.

    could this be because of a weak or worn out spring on the front driver side?

    It's because all of the heavy stuff is on the driver's side. Like the gas tank, battery, and transfer case.

    the only thing you can do is tweak the drivers side. its because most of the weight is on the Drivers Side. Fuel tank and Driver!
