Driver side height about 1/2 inch Higher (Before/After Lift)

I took before and after measurements when I installed my BDS 2" Lift. I gained about 2 1/4 all the around, but my left front is still about a 1/2 inch higher. Went back and checked before measurements and it showed it was around 1/2 inch higher from the factory.. Are they set from the factory this way? Cant really tell by looking at it and the ride is better than factory, just wondering why it sits this way..

I believe the difference compensates for weight of driver but some people states the sag is from from drivetrain torque upon acceleration.

Ok, thanks.. It seems like I read that before, but still seemed odd. I wonder if all trucks and cars are set up this way or is it a jeep thing..

I didn't measure before switching springs but I ended up about 1/4-3/8" higher on DS too.
