D90 listing to starboard

I got out of the d90 yesterday and noticed it listing slightly to the drivers side. It isn't terrible but noticeable to someone who is detail oriented. I am wondering if the springs on that side have sagged? Does this happen with just one side? I was contemplating going up to 3" RTE springs since these are OME. I have the rockware bumper with a Superwinch S9000 along with the the safari rack on top. If I were to swith would the 3 inchers be a good fit?

All hand assembled vehicles have major fitment problems... uh... quirks, I mean. If it's happened recently, then it's probably time to flush the under seat toilet

Follow-up Post:

Oh OK.. yes springs can sag. Almost every LR has one corner that sags because LR and OME put in unequal height springs. The idea is to balance out the driver/battery, but of course the driver is over the battery in the US and not over the battery in the UK, but they still put the same springs on.

You can get 3" springs that are "equal" height springs.

And you may want to check but sometimes the spring perches are not at the same height either.
