Axles misalignment?

I finished putting together the 10 bolt 8.2 differential on my 67 Impala but didnt notice until today while putting on the new parking brake cable/brakes that my axles are not rolling together. One spins opposite of the other. Ive tried looking up reasons why this is but google keeps dodging the questions (apparently).

Can anyone tell me why this is happening? I know I put everything back in properly reverse of how it all came out originally.

Standard differentials (aka one wheel drive) do that. Perfectly normal. Limited slip diffs, both turn the same way.
