retaining wall

Im in the process of building a retaining wall about 3 feet high. I am using posts and also intend to use 4x6s as the cross members (which will be staked). 2 questions....
1. two of the posts are not aligned (about 1/2-1 inch off) with the others. Any suggestions????? Should I put in shims??? or just leave it?
2. should I stagger the cross members or have the ends of two cross members meet directly behind the posts????

Any help wold be greatly appreciated.

I think I'd try to shim the posts to get the wall all aligned and would have all the ends behind the posts. Good luck!
