#rt-menu ul.menu li.active a, #rt-menu ul.menu li.active a:hover, .menutop li.root.active > .item, .menutop li.root.active > .item:hover, .menu-type-splitmenu .menutop li.active .item

Not if you measure the distance between the top of the nav bar & the links with the bottom of the nav bar & the links.

i.e. see picture attached. I want an even gap on both the top & bottom of the text in the links. Padding on navigation uneven

On line 21 in your fusionmenu.css I found this:
.menutop li.root > .item span {
   display: block;
   margin: 0;
   outline: none;
   padding: 0 15px;
   width: auto;
   line-height: 3em;

Open in new window

Change line-height to 40px (the size your containers are) and your padding should look better.
