How was your approach/departure angles?

I hadn't thought about it until now, but I wonder if I could create a shim to slightly angle the receiver up, to counter the sag induced by heavy objects hanging off the back? Easiest thing might be some washers, but the receiver might rely on full contact with the frame for strength.
