So I have them all setup manually, and firing at full power my only problem is that the sb-800 will fire maybe half of a second after the 580ex ii and 7d rather then them all firing simultaneously. I can't for the life of me figure out why?

how are you accomplishing this?  If the nikon flash somehow reacts to the Canon pilot flash then that explains the erratic behavior.

Your best bet is probably to use both flashes in manual and trigger them with a 3rd party wireless trigger
