I have noticed that one rear wheel is closer to the arch than the other.

the tape measure showed that one side is lower than the other by roughly 2 cm

is it the spring or are there other suspects I should check before ordering the spring.

My first guess would be a worn out suspension top mount. But it could be springs or old struts.

Could be the spring pads worn out, those are in the diagram. But as mentioned, it could be a worn out strut. How many miles do they have on them?

You parked on even ground?

Its not unusual to have different heights. 2cm is a solid amount though.

Almost every BMW is aligned so that the driver's side of the car sits a little bit higher than the passenger side. The reason for this is most people do their driving alone, so with just the driver in the car, the suspension settles and the car sits even side to side. Yours may be a little bit out of this figure but a height difference side to side is not in itself unusual
