Dinan springs install question

I recently installed dinan springs and after two weeks and an alignment. I realized that both passenger front and rear sits 20mm lower than the drivers. Did they install it bad or something is wrong with my car? thank you

Dinan springs on my 550 xDrive: left and right side match. The Dinan upgrade dropped it from a loose three finger gap all around (50mm +) to a tight two finger gap in the front (about 35mm) and a slightly tighter two finger gap at both rear fenders.

Can you do a favor for me and measure the height from the floor to the lower part of the fender?

My front right is 27 1/4
Front left is 28"
Rear right and left are 27 1/2"

I've contacted dinan and they've said my front right is a bit on the lower side and 28" is where it's suppose to be at. But stock is 28 1/4".

Thanks for your reply.
