intonation/ trem level question

i just got my guitar back and i am not happy with the set up. the edge bridge is not level in the cavity, it is tilted back.... will adjusting the spring tension to level the bridge result in messing up my action (make it higher). If i adjust the spring tension will i need to lower the bridge at the studs? will my intonation be off if i do this? i waited way too long to get the guitar back from the shop so i am hesitant to ship it back there.....

thanks for the advice.

Re: intonation/ trem level question

Back the screws out of the spring clip a little and retune. Repeat until the tremolo is level. This will not screw up intonation, but it may raise the action just a bit. If you aren't happy with the action, lower the tremolo using the studs and retune.
