With barbells, the more dominant/stronger side with always do most of the work; it is just a natural thing, but with dumbells, each side has to perform equally and move an equal amount of weight requiring more use of the stabilizer muscles.Former Marine, UT-BSN, NSCA-CPT, NASM-CPT, CSCS

Excellent, that's what I thought but thought I'd better check.....

Fix what's wrong with your shoulder, you could have something wrong that's throwing off your balance, weak rotators, scapular retractors, etc. I've also seen LOTS of problems with one side lagging that were caused by uneven leg drive, myself included, so make sure your feet are even with respect to both forward/aft location and width/toe in/out. Pay more attention to your setup and squeeze the bar extra tight with the hand that's lagging behind. Close grip work against bands really helped me even out, but I didn't have a shoulder issue. Good luck and stay positive.

more than likely its not your shoulder but your triceps that are crapping out on you. I prescribe close grips off boards and or the chest with a little skull crusher action worked it on it.
