The "Chevy lean" and Ride height?

On my 04 silverado crew cab short bed, I have king 2.5 coilovers with the "helper spring" thats rated 500 and the lower is 700 in the front. My truck leans too much to the right, which I've always thought was opposite for Silverados. My coils already have a lot of preload on them, and it doesn't soak up a lot of little bumps in the road either especially being it's a daily driver... I know that has a lot to do with my valving but I was wondering if to increase my ride height on the right side I should bring the upper collar down lower, or the stop nuts down and put a little less preload so I have that upper shock working as well. The springs are practically touching right now, and the slider rests on the stop nuts (As I've seen in most Silverado builds). Also my alignment is pretty off, I don't know how much that would affect my ride height. My main goal here is just trying to bring the right side up and smooth it out on little bumps as well. Please help! I may be over thinking this.
