Are you a guitar tech? Do you have the tools to make the proper measurements?If you answered no to these two questions then take it to a guitar shop and have it set up the way you want by a professional. you'll be glad you did!

He just wants to adjust the action, not set it up.

Zimwibwe is correct. adjusting the action should be done by an advanced player or a professional. chances are just you are playing too hard. but if your bass has never had a pro set-up, you'll be very glad you did. a set-up adjusts the action(height of strings, over the frets), truss rod adjustment, if needed, and intonation. a set-up can be very reasonably priced at you're local music shop, if you buy a set of strings.
