I have a very similar hookah (Sheherezad) and I do have a slight problem with this. One solution may be to get a new grommet that is slim enough to let the stem fit completely, yet snugly into the base.

New grommet, different type of grommet. Some rigs do have a noticable lean to them. Sambooka has a KM with a good lean, my Old E leaned to one side as well (why as a lamp it RUFUSES to stay put ].

Unless the lean threatens to topple the whole rig, it may be wise to leave things be. The old saying, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" thing.

the cause is the grommet, some sand paper can fix that (sand the grommet) or you can just get a new one

get a thin ceramic tile maybe to put under one side. Or better get a large tile and stick a wad of heavy duty aluminum foil under the side it leans on.You will see that the foil will even out the dif and you stay with a tile that will keep your falling coals from burning the rug or floor.
