Setting up brakes and shifters

Hey I'm a real perfectionist and i just put on new shifters and I'm having a hell of a time getting the brake leavers and shifters equal heights. anyone have any ideas on how to do this? i was thinking of setting up the one side and maybe like resting something on the one side and have it cross over to the other side so all i have to do is press the other side up against it making it equal to the other side(make sense? does in my head lol ) any better ideas?

Worry less....Ride More!

Chances are God didn't make YOU pefectly symmetrical either!

Heck, I broke my left arm when I was 12 and now it's an inch shorter than my right arm!
