Pickups sitting at an angle

My pickups have both seemed to have dropped in a bit and so are sitting at an angle - I've lowered them but they are not angled one end higher than the other, just along the length. Why would this actually happen, should I take them back to the shop who installed them?

Have your installation shop put a piece of foam under each of them. That'll help keep them from angling.

Just so that we understand clearly, are you saying that, say, the high E side is higher or lower than the low E side, or that the neck side of a pickup is higher or lower than the bridge side?

In lowering them you may have lowered them onto their wires. The foam suggestion should fix this. It's not so difficult to do it yourself though, I wouldn't be taking them back to the shop.
The fact that they are at an angle will may an exceedingly small difference to the sound anyway. In fact, why did you lower them - just raise them back up again!
