You don’t mention the brand or quality of the slides you are using. Most of the Euro type drawer slides that are side mounted have one side that is “captured” in that the cabinet member has a little lip that keeps the rollers from moving to the side. You want to make sure that that side of the slide is perpendicular to the face and that the box is square.
I have put hundreds (if not thousands) of drawers in kitchen cabinets and can tell you that a little too loose is better than a little too tight.
