I would either bring the seperation on the chassis up to 7", or drop the seperation on the axle to 8".
having the link lengths the same is key for pinion rotation.

Other than that, stop sweating the numbers. They're good enough and they'll change a little once you start building the mounts and trying to package everything at full stuff.

Just keep making process, or you'll analyze the project to death, and eventual part out (we call that the Strangler Syndrome)
