    Dumbbell shrugs seated/standing, using one arm at a time. There are some "trap" or "shrug" machines that has unilateral arms.

    alot of the time it just takes time for one side of ur body to get even with the other, i think it may have something to do with the fact that one side of your body is stronger than the other but im not sure

    could it be that one side grows faster then the other because there is a big difference and there is no noticeable diff in strength from one side to the other

    if you have the standing calve raise machine at your gym just get under it like you're doing calve raises and do shrugs. you can focus on the flex alot more because you aren't balancing weights

    If you do your excercise with proper form everything should even out over time
