Passenger side lower than driver side

Stock, 2000 Jeep TJ

Just wondering why my passenger side if about 1/4" LOWER then my drivers side. I was measuring from the ground, to the fender flare. Front and Back.

Some people are saying this normal, because Jeep is compensating for the weight of the driver. Is this true? Or are my passenger side springs (front and rear) getting weak.

Thanks

My 2000 did that until I got the lift on. I think the springs just got a bit weak after siz years of torque roll.

From what I understand, the drivetrain torque pushes the right rear down on acceleration, and causes it to sag unevenly from the left rear. On mine, I solved it by switching the rear springs around.
