Lift issue

I just installed a rough country 4" lift on my 2000 tj and everything is done correctly on the front this isn't my first lift I've installed but for some reason measuring from the floor up to the bottom of the fender on the front under the turn signal the driver side is 34 1/2 and the passenger side is 33 1/4 what could this be ?

Different length or rate on the springs installed on each side? I would double check to make sure each spring is seated correctly on the top and bottom.

maybe the spring isolator on top of one spring is missing?

Isolators are still on both sides.... Springs are seated on top and bottom that was what I checked first.

It's RC. I've heard it happening to a few people.

How about swapping the front springs? Move the left spring to the right side and right to the left. Then measure again and see if the problem follows the springs or stays on the original side.
