Stock suspension drop on LR AWD?

I noticed on the configuration page that there is a noticeable suspension drop on the car image when switching from SR+ to LR AWD. There is another smaller drop from LR AWD to Performance. I recall the P models getting a slight suspension drop but I don't recall hearing any difference between SR+ and LR AWD, Is there a difference?

I noticed this a few days ago as well, odd since I don't have a habit of visiting that page after receiving my Model 3 :D

I assume it's because the LR battery pack adds significant extra weight (plus the extra weight of the front motor and such), and given the same suspension will sit a bit lower. However, I have no idea if this is why the page is representing it as lower than the SR+.
