Its not unusual. Its always more noticeable with shortened springs. About the only way to correct it is to do some relocation of the pads to a different spot and angle depending on your desired setup. You don't need to worry about it though.

The only alignment you need to worry about is making sure the top ends of the pigtail on both springs are pointing towards the drivers side back wheel.

Yeah, no kidding, another reason not to go that route as well.
