How to match the colors in stereoscopic pictures

I have been experimenting with taking stereoscopic pictures. I use two Pentax *ist DL that run the same firmware and have identical settings. So far I shot in 6M *** JPEG but I noticed a consistent difference in coloration between the left and right image.
I know that there are programs that can perform automatic color adjustments when stitching panoramas. Is there also something like this for adjusting the colors of stereoscopic pictures?
I haven't tried RAW mode yet but I would assume that I'll experience the same differences (just in PEF then). What would be my best angle of attack? I am looking for something automatic because I need to apply the adjustment to hundreds of pictures at a time.
I would upload a sample picture to illustrate what I'm talking about, but being a newbie here I don't know how to upload to this board.

Have you tried manually setting your white balance on each?

Is your monitor calibrated with a hardware device?

Try RAW. The good thing is that you can then set the WB for each to an absolute value and should get identical colors that way.
