I noticed this a week ago when reconfiguring my wdh and even without any load (uncoupled). I just installed airlift airbags today and the enven measurements still exist. DS is higher than PS, front or rear. Is this normal?

Measure with an average weight person sitting in the driver's seat and a full fuel tank and see what the difference is.

I would think it was to offset the fuel tank. My son just did a 3 inch lift on a 4Runner and the right *I think) spacer was half what the other one was for the tank allowance...

my JT diesel sat higher on the drivers side (low fuel level at the timme)after 3.5" teraflex springs. couldnt really find an answer I was happy with. So I used JKS ACOS for the added spacer and to allow me to level it side to side.. If I remember correctly, I set the drivers at 1.5" and passenger at 1.75".. I should probably take some pics.

half an inch - nothing. I'd only be concerned with more.
Where is your truck when you measure? On a totally level scale, or in your garage or driveway?
If in your garage, bet a beer it's not level, especially if there's a floor drain, but otherwise, they shouldn't be totally level as the way slabs work........
And driveways are normally slopped for drainage, etc. I don't have much for anything level here except very small parts of the garage. Even my big shop floor has two drains and has a very gradual slope for water drainage - although the idiot that did the work f'd up big time and now water doesn't flow TO the drains......
You can also double-check what the difference might be due to by turning the truck around and measure again.
Oddly enough, mine is 1/4" higher right rear than left rear, and, the front is perfectly even (that part of the floor is level according to my 8" level)

"bet a beer it's not level"...hahaha. not sure if u r talking about a type of floor construction or if a can of beer is in the passenger side drink holder adding more wt that side

I went to church yesterday...parking lot. That is where I usually do my set tt ups. My garage is still packed with amazon boxes and camping stuff. I wish I have a bigger garage. Someday maybe....

We're glamping in the driveway yesterday and my sister noticed the eneven spaces between (left and right) front fenders and front bumper.
