tremelo angle after new strings

Hi, I just changed my stings on my 2001 7vwh, I used the same brand and gauge of strings ( 9 - 42 ), and for some reason, my tremelo angle is above neutral now.... and now my intonation is off for the high E, B and G stings.... anyone have any ideas? and how do I correct this? thanks in advance!

I have the same problem, even though I use the same brand and gauge, I always have to mess with the trem springs a bit to get the trem angle back to normal. I would say leave it for a day or two, stretch the strings, keep retuning it, see if it settles back.

it's been 2 days, still the same, but it stays in tune! wow, amazing.. hahah.... and now I just tuned it down 1/2 step, and it's in neutral position, but that just annoys me !
