Default Help, rear right side slight sag

Hello all!
I hope everyone had plenty to eat.
I have a 2012 express quad cab. The past few months Ive noticed that my rear end passenger side has been sitting 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch lower than the other side. I thought it was the slope in the terrain but I've parked it on different slopes and the right rear side still sits lower. The front seem to sit even and it's just the rear. Is this normal? I have bilstein shocks and .75 inch poly TGC spacers. Should I just let it be? Or remove the springs out and compare them? I might also just remove the rear spacers completely. I know it's not much but I'm very particular :/ anyone have the same sort of sag on their 4th gens whether it's one side or the other?

Any input would be great! Cheers!

I have seen some trucks that have the lean to it, some fix it with a spacer not sure what the actual cause for it is there was a thread about (probably more than one) that I was reading here on the Z about a year and a half ago talking about it.

when you say bilsteins and a .75" TGC spacer what exactly do you mean do you have adjustables up front and the spacer, or the spacer in the back and just normal bilstein replacement shocks?

I have adjustable bilsteins up front (2.8) and I have the replacement bilsteins in the rear along with the spacer.

I used to have the steel 1.5 spacers in the rear, switched to the polyurethane .75 spacers.

I'll take out the .75 rear spacers tomorrow to see if it may be the cause because they seem to be even before I switched to the polyurethane spacers.

It's probably not gonna be the spacers.
They aren't really a wear item
More likely one spring has sagged more then the other,it's a known problem on these trucks.
For shits and giggles try swapping the springs side to side,and make sure you index them properly.

I took the springs out, noticed the driver side spring was a half an inch longer than the other. (I shouldve taken pics) very odd.....

Mix and match the spacers you have.
Try throwing one of your steel 1.5" spacers on the short side,and leave the shorter poly spacer on the long spring.
If you got the parts on hand,utilize them.

Or maybe get some better quality aftermarket springs. I know there is at least one company that makes aftermarket springs for our trucks, but I haven't heard one way or the other as to their quality.
