Coilover adjustment height - driver's side vs. passenger side

This is for anyone here with coilovers, did you compensate your weight/passenger load when lowering? The reason I ask is because I am 90% of the time the only one cruising in my car and if I lower the car evenly on all four corners will the drivers side settle a bit MORE than the passenger's side? I am about 185lbs but also I shed almost 100lbs from the car removing the Y resonator and stock muffler.

No. I just measured from the center of the wheel rondel to the bottom edge of the fender arch, made sure each wheel has the same measurement.
Been 2 years with no issues.
