Are you sure the problem is in the back? A truck can not be lower on one side in the back and the front is straight. If so, it is bent.

It’s a NBS Chevy thing. Gas tank, battery, all wiring, plus driver is on the on driver side. They always tend to be .5” to 1.5” lower.

Having a stock and 1” drop on the pass, or 1” and 2” is pretty common.

Many cars/trucks are heavier on the driver's side. The stiffer or higher the spring rate, the less this would be a problem.
So If it is sagged out more than an 1", I'd say the springs are too soft anyways.

I would not change anything suspension geometry related. Either leave it alone or rearch or dearch one leaf spring a tiny bit.
