Red face GRC axle alignment

ok I have installed the 12.5" extender kit :-P I like the way the chassi look 2nd hole from inside, but I'm using the 2nd hole from outside for better ground clearance.

But yesterday I noticed when i put the chassis on a flat surface, the front & rear axles don't seat flat to the ground (flat surface). Rear axle is ..slightly.. tilted upwards on the right side

I've checked the shocks mounting, they're not too tight or binding. Upper and lower linkages are same length respectively. All shocks are fully extended.

Any ideas where to check..

I noticed the same thing with mine the other day but it turned out I didn't drill the shock mounting holes in the same position on each of the rails (did the stretch before the 12.5" kit was available). I would also measure each shocks to see if they are equal length as they ultimately determine how far the axel drops from the chassis. if one was a little shorter then it would look like the pic you posted.

X2 and check the shock mount holes in the chassis...could be factory defect not located same on both pieces.
