body straightness

Today when I jacked up my Capri, instead of puting the jackstands under the suspension arms I put them under the engine crossmember. But for some reason when I lowered the jack. one of the jackstands wasn't touching the crossmember.... Could It be body alignment problem? I've used that jackstants hundreds of times before on other cars and I'm completely sure that they have no diference in height. The only things that could causing are, my garage floor isn't striahgt on that place, the crossmemeber isn't straight or the body isnt' straight. Whats your opinion? I was in a hury when this happened, so I hadn't time to check it well. The red squares in the pictures are the places where I put the jackstands. This picture it's an older one from the begining of the resto.

Best regardments,
António Costa
