Trem Height - Should the trem height be the same all around?

Hi I was fiddling with my trem post and set screws yesterday, and I took a close look at the way my tremelo...Looking at it from eye level from the neck towards the body of the guitar, I noticed that the tremelo wasn't the same height looking at the low E to the high E...Honestly it wasn't off by a lot, but its higher on the low E and slightly slower on the high E...Is this the way it should be? Or should the trem be the same height everywhere?

THANKS!!!! Please someone answer ...Hopefully someone is as ****
as me out there...OH i have a RG3120 BTW...

Trem Height

different folks will tell you different things, but according to Ibanez-your setup is correct.

Ibanez official action is 2.0 mm bass side, 1.5 mm treble side.
