Angry Right side lower than left...?

Jus did suspension swap myself on my 330ci.. Struts, shocks, springs, sways, etc.. What would cause one side to be lower.. Rtab maybe?

If you search around the general consensus is that the driver's side sits higher to account for the extra weight when the driver is in the car.

It's supposed to be, so when you sit in it, it's balanced.

Unless you mean a lot of difference. I think it's maybe 1/2" or so at most.

It's around 1/2".. But I didn't replace the rtab.. They were back ordered from my supplier and I needed my car... So could that be the cause? It's oem at 130k...
