Default Suspension lower on passenger side

Guys I'm gaving this wierd problem... My suspension is lower on passenger side quite a bit (Continental Europe) and too high on the drivers side. I tried to re-calibrate it at least 25 times, the process is always a success but it does not change anything. I have new Arnott front struts, compressor, relay and all four sensors as well as the valve block.
How can I adjust it to normal height?

Have you tried it on some perfectly flat ground? Maybe a wheel is in a dip oron a lump or maybe the ground is just curved but looks flat.

How are you calibrating it? Using default values or are you actually measuring it yourself and entering the values.

Ground has to be super flat for calibration and you must not be in the car for the process.

I'm measuring and entering the actual numbers.
I did it at least 20 times and walla, now It's standing proud.
Rear L-R is 3mm difference, front is 1mm. I think this is good enough.

To be clear, are you saying the tolerances between the two fronts is increasing?
