Rear trac bar question

So I just completed a complete frame swap on my '00 TJ. It went very well with no big issues. Now that it is done I notice the jeep sits a bit tilted. About a 1/2" lower on the right rear. I have 2 thoughts...1) I got the frame used and it may be slightly bent. 2) When re-installing the rear trac bar I had to have 4 people stand on the right rear to get it connected. Maybe those 2 are the same issue (bent frame). It's not a huge deal but after all that work it's kinda driving me nuts looking at it crooked and all. Any advice would be great. Can an autobody shop fix that? What if I jack the right rear and heat up the cross member?

The R-R spring commonly sags before the L-R spring due to engine torque being passed back to that corner more than to the L-R corner. I recently replaced my rear springs due to that issue.

any lift? if trac bar holes are the same on the new frame (location) Is the axel centered under the new frame? an adjustable rear trac will help you but if it's not centered something else is wrong.
