Default Stock Axle Length

I am in the middle of a 8.8 build and measuring the stock 7.5" rear from center of pinion to outside of backing flanges I get 29.25 on the passenger side and 30.375 on the driver side. That's a 1.125" difference. Are the stock axles slightly different length ? Or are they exactly equal ?

stock axles are identical left and right and can be interchanged.

The pinion is not on the centerline between the axles, it's offset.
