The usual culprit for lack of bass would be a loose seal somewhere. Double check (particularly the right side) the pad sealing around the baffle, check for any tears. Try electrical tape around the pad edge to ensure a seal. If it's not that, maybe you accidentally blocked the vents in the right cup?
IIRC, the imbalance was there before the mods (I've had them for two years before finally finishing the mod last weekend so I could be wrong). I always thought it was the cable and poor quality connectors that would be fixed with deoxit so I kinda brushed it off. But i just got my deoxit today and lubed it up, and it's still the same (the crackling is gone, but the volume problem is the same).

If you having measuring tools use them to check FR and DB level, if not, do the ol ear to ear test!
I actually think I have more material in the left side, which is odd as that is the louder side. I don't have anything but my ears to test, although I'd be interested in a set of tools if they weren't too expensive.
