bar is off to one side after squats

I noticed that when completing squats, after racking the bar, the bar is often slightly off to one side e.g. not dead centre. It's always consistently biased towards the right.

This is in spite of trying to ensure the bar is dead-centre when I begin my squats.

Does this mean that somehow one leg is slightly stronger than the other? Or there is nothing to worry about?

Do you mean the bar starts off dead center, but slides to the right during the set? Or do you mean the plates shift to the right (assuming you're not using collars)?

How are you ensuring that the bar is dead center?
Remember that no matter how strong you think you are there's a little Chinese girl warming up with your max...

How does the bar feel on your back when you squat?
Are you walking the weight in or racking it 1 side at a time?
