Pretty much as the title says, replaced rear springs and the drivers side sits about 1.5" higher. I thought I installed everything right, it was a pretty quick job and all. If I'm not mistaken there are no alignment pockets correct?

make sure the drivers side spring isn't sitting on the bubble at the top....

1.5"? that's a big difference,these rear springs are a slam dunk.switch them left to right see if you can replicate these results.if you can replicate the results,swap the original springs back in and see what's doing.

thanks guys, you have mentioned everything i have already figured which is good. my plan tonight was to get it back on the lift and swap them side to side. i used napa single rate springs. i should also be seeing the fronts in a couple days.

I agree with swapping them side to side. Sometimes it’s related to front springs.

Once you change all the springs if you still are having this problem, get some air bags to even the ride height.
