ST Coilovers not going up too much

After installing my ST Coilovers, I drove the car for several hundred miles to let them settle. Now I swapped wheels and have gone to a wider tire, (265/30/19). I needed to come up on the rear to avoid rubbing and level out the car.

I noticed now that the rear passenger side will not go up as high as the rear drivers side. The gap on the adjustment discs on the drivers side is approximately 1/2" and the other side has a gap of little over a full inch. This has me stumped...

So, basically I have to open up the passenger side twice as much as the drivers side to obtain the same height on both ends. Any thoughts as to why this might be occurring..., bad springs, dampers...

make sure the spring is sitting in the lower control arm properly. In the rubber spring perch.
