pachekim is on a distinguished road

I've been modeling a cylindrical shell, by using cartesian system, and doing a transient analysis. My X-axis is the one passing by the center of my cylinder. When I create an analysis of the Y-component of displacement versus time by choosing an specific point (TimeHist Postprocessing), I got different results when I use the displacement on Z-component, still on the same point.

What am I supposed to do to get equal results? Thanks in advance.
