    these are all minor but:

    my left arm is smaller than right ( everyone has that but my left is weaker too)
    my left trap is lower than my right
    my right oblique is bigger than my left
    my left calf is bigger than my right.

    should i just add more weight to left side and do an extra rep with just the right calf?

    if you do the same weight on both sides they should eventually even themselves out and other than that it might just be genetic

    I think if you were to concentrate on your left side more, you could make better gains on that side?? mind/bod connection man. Envision each muscle growing, moving as you lift. make slow controlled movements.

    I have the same problem with everythign but the obliques... which I just can't tell. Add that my left leg is smaller and less defined than my right leg.
    When I do dumbells or single leg/arm exercises I start with the left side. I used to also do a few sets on some days just on the weaker side as well.

    i have a similar problem however it's the oposite of what is mentioned.

    My left side seems to be the more "defined" side yet I'm right handed. However, when I measure (lets say my bicep) everything is the same - the muscle is just more defined especially around my tricep.
