Should the Front Axle & Rear Axle be off centered to the passanger side by .5"?

Before I started installing my lift in my 03' TJ, I wanted to mark down some measurements.

With the jeep on jack stands (supported at the axles) using a weighted string (plum bob, centered with the wheel), I measured the distance between the string and the rotor. It appears that both front and rear axle sits .5" towards the passenger side.

After I installed the rear track bar re-locator bracket the rear axle was now .75" towards the passenger side.

Is this normal for the axel to be located more to the passenger side by this distance? About to install my adjustable track bar and wanted to make sure I am aligning everything correctly.

Using a track bar re-locator bracket in the rear you are stuck with whatever you end up with, which is varies by the height of the lift installed. The only way to get it even, is to get lucky or use an adjustable track bar.

1/2" doesn't hurt anything.
