Jeff, to assemble a lens, you need a collimator to make sure all optical elements ate correct in place. You need skills and a manual, to be able to adjust all lens elements in a correct order.

Asking this question, I'm sure you don't have a manual, a collimator and you miss the skills. So if you don't want to end up with a pile if glass, unable to act as a lens, please don't try this yourself. Even Sony will not reassemble the lens if you took it apart. If you really need a lens to b cleaned, please bring it to a Sony certified service centre and ask them what it will cost to clean / replace the lens.

That's the backfocus problem. Take your camera to a Sony service.
If the lenses are ok, they will do an adjustment. If the lenses are defective, they will
replace the lenses, but that costs much.
