I've never seen this with any coilover install. Sometimes it is a little off when setting by collar height but 1/2 inch difference between left and right is quite a bit.

Is this normal for the Sleeve-over?
Assuming your off in the front. If that is the case then the perch got hammered into one strut more than the other. Its a friction fit and it can take a lot of pounding to get it fully seated. It's not the end of the world if they are off, just adjust it in the collar to level it out.
