I am sure this is a molding problem from left to right.
Agreed - ours also has the knobs in different places. I would expect there is a moulding "tolerance" but I'll also bet those blades aren't dead straight. There will be tolerances in the lower arm holes, the lower suspension pins, the bolts . . . all of it. And that's just one side of the suspension.
If you consider the geometry involved I would be surprised to see any holders having equal knobs, and after all, who cares - this is the function of the knobs.
Having previously used the K-Factory alloy holders with NO eccentrics (who thought that up) I have spent much time fiddling with these things to eliminate a potential built in tweak. My K-Factory experience has left me slightly paranoid and I've re-checked the Evo plastic ones twice. So far so good.

The problem that I have with the plastic holder is when I tighten the adjusting screw it bent the arm pin which make the suspension not working probably even without the blade installed.
There must be something fundamental wrong here, I reckon, but could only guess as to the cause.
Were the lower pins bent in the first place? - mine were.
Up-stops making contact, maybe?
The "ball" ended blade bottoming out in the "cup" ended blade?
I've had all these and more with those wonderfully designed K-Factory articles.
