    The right kidney sits under the liver, the largest internal organ. So it's lower down (2-8 cm lower) than the left kidney which is under the spleen, a much smaller organ. The tops of the spleen and liver are pretty much in line due to the diaphragm, which is why where their lower borders are makes such a difference
