DJM Suspension drop

Alright i no not to many people here lower there rangers but here we go. i installed the djm suspension drop that came with upper and lower control-arms along with coil springs and for the rear was a flip kit and i installed toxic shocks. The drop was 5'' and it looks great. Just a lil problem, on the driver side it sits a 1/2'' lower than it does on the passenger side. u can barely tell unless u put ur hand under the wheel well and the tire u can feel the space between the tire and the wheel and on the passenger side its like a full inch and on driver side half an inch. This is a really big problem when i hit bumps on the road or pretty much anything on the road lol. does anyone think its my shocks on the driver side, u think they have failed or not working???????? or do u think its something else?

than you havent looked into that good, I have a little lean on my truck to its because the gastank and battery are on the same side. I have heard of people putting a belltech 3 inch drop spring in the passenger side and having a DJm on the driver side and leveled it out or putting a 1 inch block in the back on the passenger side to level it out also. Mine doesnt lean bad so I dont pay attention. There is nothing wrong with your shocks this is a common problem that occurs when you lower rangers, its just more noticeable when you drop it.
