I was able to deduce that the problem must be with the two columns float left and right which are position relative, but still am unable to figure out why once the pagination or scroll is clicked the columns should shift...
Let me know if more information is needed, such as page source. (I will do my best to disclose all relevant information to the extent permitted by the company).
Thanks in advance!
For some reason I couldn't edit my above post but I figured the problem out. I just wrapped the floating divs in another div with absolute positioning and used that to position the floating divs top: -200px.
