I was wondering if the humbucking pickups on my jackson should be even. it seems as if the bridge pickups is higher than the neck pickup. and also I was wondering how far they should be away from the strings when looking for a modern metal sound. thanks.

no, the bridge is supposed to be higher
Adjust them to taste, the higher up they are the more output will get but you lose clarity, the further down, you get more clarity, but less output. Tweak them to where you like them.
ive just never tried moving them. this is my first guitar.
Just dont move them up too high or the magnets will catch the strings and leave you outta tune.
ill just leave it as it is as if it looks right.
