Driver rear sits lower then passenger rear?

Already posted in suspension and surprisingly had no responses.

Hey guys so to make a long story short I\'m lowered on hr springs. I have an e92 M3 and weirdly today I thought my left rear sat lowered compared to my right side so I decided to take a measurement and sure enough it was a hair under a quarter of an inch lower? What could be wrong here? I have no errors on my dash of anything.

Could it be the spring or shocks or bushings? I\'m really confused any input would help bc this obviously isn\'t something I can take into the dealer about.

did you measure before the drop? BMW spec is 10mm difference between wheels..so I'm told. 1/4 inch isn't very noticeable at stock height, becomes more apparent when dropped. Me 46 w/eibach's and now e92 w/Dinan has had 1/4 differences. Seating and pads in place verified. Passenger rear was 1/4 inch lower on both cars...strange.

Very good info. I did not get to measure them but when I first installed the springs all sides were 100 percent even
