brunocrossley, It sounds to me like you need to remove the old mounts and make some new ones where they will be aligned.
I setup up the shock mounts so that the center of the shock end bearings were in the same plane, and that that plane was perpendicular to the swing arm pivot when the swingarm was centered in the swingarm bearing adjustments. With the lower clevis mount I can make adjustments with a thicker bearing spacer on one side if the swingarm needed to be moved over for drive shaft clearance or whatever, but I don't think that will be needed.
This photo shows the mounts from the rear.
