Default uneven truck?

just took a quick measurement of my truck for the heck of it. back is 42 on both sides. but the front is 40.75 on passenger side and 39.5. is this normal or whats wrong.

i am running a 2.5 level on front and a 1.25 body lift dont know why its so much out. what could be wrong.

dont have my stock measurements so cant say if was uneven from new

could this be the cause of why whatever tire is on the passenger front scuba on the outside pretty bad

and help would be appreciated

I willing to bet is off because of the level and body lift install

what would cause it to be out tho? all the body lift mounts were same size, so shouldnt be issue their definitely not a 1 1/4 difference thats a whole spacer that would be only a 1/4 inch think ha. same goes witht the leveling kit, their was no way that the spacers varied in size that much even if they veried a little it would be like 1/16 of inch in the metal if that. not 1 1/4

it's happened where the level kits were installed improperly. maybe rotated and forced in there wrong, or upside down somehow. another guy had the same issue and I can't remember what it ended up being. I'd take it to the shop who did it
