Suspension height on track performance

I recently switched from 18" to 17" wheels on my car. The new wheels are about 1/2" wider than the previous wheels. I'm finding that the new Rear tire on the passenger side is contacting the fender, but driver side rear is fine. My car has welded on turbo flares and it appears that maybe my pass side is not welded on equal to the driver side, it sits a little lower.

So i'll be raising the rear of the car about 1/2" via the coil over shocks. Will this adjustment make any difference to the car handling on the track? And I assume i should be raising them equal amounts to keep the rear suspension balanced? Correct?
Cheers, Chris
