The caliper is straight, and the brake pads are not pushed out on one end?

Make sure the caliper is able to slide on the mounting pins. When the wheel is off the bike, you should be able to easily move the caliper left to right on it's mounting boss.

I also spread my brake pads a bit when removing the rear wheel to help reassembly.

caliper is fine,its just really tight now i dont get it.
