transmission and pinion shaft mis-alighnment

Now that I have my frame done and the rear 4 bar suspension and axle installed, I discovered that my welder installed my 4 bar axle brackets one inch and an eighth to the left. Now that my pinion is one and an eighth inch to the right of center, begs the question among others. Does the trans. shaft and pinion have to line up straight on laterally or is there an excepted amount of ms-alignment ?
I measured from end to end for the degree angle, and it came out 1.5 degrees.
I could move the drive train over to the right this amount, but buying new brackets and having them re-welded would be less of a hassle.
Your help here would be greatly appreciated, Thanks, Gary
