There are a few different causes that make the front raise unevenly, you could have a slightly bent stroke on one side, maybe the rear isnt level when your raising the front. could be air or debris in your hydraulic line.

And as far as it taking two licks to lock up the front that could be a few things also, Do you have short coils or collapsed coils? are your batterys charged completly? is your pumphead old and expanding or maybe even you lost preassure threw a pumphead seal?

even if one side in the rear is slightly higher than the other mine will raise uneven, like when my coil sits crooked on the cup sometimes from 3 wheeling, untill it fully seats into place, it will lift uneven.. try to level tha back out and lift the front...
