Rear Axle Alignment

What's the best way to ensure the axle is perpendicular to the drive-line? I only noticed this after my LCA install because I cared to check. One of the rear wheels seems closer to the front of the wheel arch while the other seems closer to the rear of the wheel arc. Can someone who is totally stock check this out on theirs? When putting back together the LCAs, I used the same length as the stock ones so im not sure where the difference is coming from. Will snap some pictures at lunch so you guys can get a better idea of what I am talking about.
 
Wheelbase is 107", which is measured from C/L of front axle to C/L of rear axle on each side. This can be performed during a front end alignment.
 
I noticed my steering wheel is a turned a little to the left and drift to the right after installing the LCA relocation brackets. I wonder if Whiteline has ran across this problem?

So now my decision is to remove them or order the LCAs.

I raised the car up yesterday from the diff because I wanted to get underneath for something unrelated to the suspension. Upon returning it to the ground and driving it around, I noticed that the difference was gone. I guess it was very minor.
