Different heights after lowering?

72 C10. 4” drop springs in rear. Shock relocate. There’s a difference of a little over 3/4” from D to P sides. No big deal, or did I screw something up? Thanks

It's not uncommon to have differences side to side on a 45yr old vehicle. 3/4" difference is not unheard of but is kind of excessive.

This is why I always take measurements before any work is performed. Those details help answer whether the problem was pre-existing (possibly worn body bushings or tweaked frame) vs a possible result of the install.

I ended up with about 1/2" difference on my 72 C. I used CPP coils and they didn't seat the best in the front. I assumed it was due to that.

Drive it a bit and see if it settles it’s common for chevys to lean to the driver side
