New to the TJ DIY

HELP !!! I started the project on my 1997 TJ with replacing suspension with a 4" lift. That lead to much cutting and grinding to remove old components. So now it's been a week or so some relatively expensive cam bolts, washers and nuts for the lower control arms, etc. so while I was waiting for parts I decided to jump in and replace the brakes. Front pads, rotors led to new calipers which lead to new hub bearing assemblies and now new knuckles. So while we are waiting for parts we move to the rear brakes starting with shoes, drums, rebuild kit and now the emergency brake rebuild kit, and I am now thinking why not replace the wheel cylinders while I am at it. All of that leads me tony question...... ARE THE BACKPLATES SUPPOSED TO BEEN SHAPED TO APPEAR NOT TO BE AT A PERFECT RIGHT ANGLE TO THE AXLE HOUSING? It appear as if on both sides the wheel mounting plate is aligned at a right angle with the front of the backplate being closer to the center of the jeep than the rear.
