Question Help... 1/4" lower on rear drivers side

Just put new 18" wheels and tires from AM on my mustang to remove some 20s I didn't like.

Was looking at it today and noticed it's 1/4" lower on the drivers side rear. Measuring from level floor to wheel well center, (yes, tires at same pressure)
The gap difference is quite visible, I'm not sure how long it's been like this it's been in the garage for the winter but never noticed it before (could be it wasn't as noticeable with the 20s?)

Drivers side is just under 28"
Passenger side is 28 1/4"
It was lowered with eibach springs before I got it.
Checked the part number on the springs and its the same.

So, I've swapped the rear springs drivers side to passenger and it's still the same!? Drivers side still lower...

Any ideas what it could be if it's not the springs??
Do the spring mounts go bad?

How hard would it be to get us a photo of each side?

Did you check the shocks on the rear for leakage?

Shocks seemed fine.

Took it for a drive over the craptastic roads here and they settled a bit. Now less than a 1/4" difference. I'm thinking it's the rubber mounts making the difference.
I noticed the bottom mounts have slight groves where the spring was sitting. Maybe I should rotate the lower one so it's not in the grove?

Anyone notice a difference in the height on their mustang? Maybe a little is normal.

If one side is lower by 1/4 inch then the difference is really 1/8. This is because you can't raise one side without affecting the other. Do you have an adj pan hard bar? If not, how off center is the axle? It took a good year for my Steeda springs to settle in and get even.

Shock could be weakening from the eibach drop, were they stock shocks?

Well that makes me feel better. I have had it jacked on some steep angles installing a pypes mid muffler system.

I measured and the axle is centred. No adj pan hard.

Stock shocks car is at 60k miles.
