Front End Ride Height - not level

I was looking into cranking my new 01 Ranger 4x4 to level it out with the stock rear block (2 1/2").
I took a tape measure to the front wheel wells and the driver's side looks to be about 3/4" LOWER than the passenger side (33"/33-3/4"). Is this height difference normal? The back end is level (36").

Just crank the t-bars to level the sides out, Over time they may lower on one side.

Yup. Its called the "Ranger lean". Keep in mind that the battery and gas tank are on the drivers side.

You are and the driver is always on the drivers side too. The left side typically has more weight on it than the right side and will wear out quicker.

So cranking them to level out should do the trick? Sounds good to me, just wanted to make sure something wasn't wrong. Don't know how much the previous owner could have messed with it. Only 55,000 on it tho!

My truck had the same problem not long after I got it, took it to the dealer(this was before I started working on it) and let them fix it.
