Default Uneven height when jacking up rear

Hi all, I've been a member since 2010, bought my MY 56 moonrock back last March, I've done the basics, diff and gearbox oil change, renewed front driver side caliper, and rear nearside caliper, clutch master cylinder renewed, ive also done the clutch delay delete. All 4 wheels refurbed, undersealed the rear arches and behind the rear bumper. I noticed when jacking the car up at the rear using the diff as a jacking piont, the car raises higher on the passanger side is there a reason for this and should I be worried

You're jacking it up on a slope..?

The diff is offset slightly to the n/s so your not jacking it up dead centre

I didn't realise the diff was offset, that makes sense as the car raises higher on the n/s , thanks Daytona-Dave

Had this thought myself until I removed the drive shafts which differ in length.

Car's also slightly heavier on the right - exhaust system, steering system, controls, etc.
