Leaf springs lift questions

Is it possible for a lift kit to have front/back leaf spring differences in height? My jeep sags to the driver side and all the parts appear to be identical. It scrubs to the drivers side and lunges under heavy throttle/deacceleration. Other than a huge man being the previous owner I cannot figure it out. I pretty good at diagnosing engine issues, but this baffles me. I am trying to keep from having to work my way through the entire suspension.

Put a fat guy on the drivers side and that side will sit lower. Put that weight on the same side long enough and those springs will dearch faster than the other.

What lift and spring configuration (SUA/SOA) is it. Fill out your profile so we don't have to ask this sort of question in the future. Are their still track bars on it? ...Sway bar?
