Everything you've said makes sense. I sure hope that's the case. I'll roll the car around a bit to let things settle and then swing back around with my findings.It's because you just let the car down off the jack and have not driven it. Think about what happens when you jack the front end. The wheel moves down and the bottom of the tire moves in. Now lower the car. The bottom of the tire is still in as the tire contacts the ground. The friction between the tire and the ground prevents the bottom of the tire from moving out to it's natural location. That goes away once the car is driven. Drive it around the block, then give it a good bounce.
Right now you are trying to solve something that many not even be an issue.
