Measure diagonally to each corner. They should be the same. Plum bob make a mark on the floor to make it easier for you.

When the lift was put on my truck they didn't tighten the u bolts alway. I was pulling a heavy trailer one day and almost lost my rear end the lift blocks were sticking out a good inch inch in a half I did a temp fix on it but it shifted again now the passenger side rear wheel sit a good 2" forward from the drivers side

Like I said if you don't have blocks with pins I would get new blocks I don't trust them.

Also did you retorque the bolts and nuts after 1000 mi on the whole lift?
