Even though I am expecting UPS to pick mine up today I decided to take him out and give this a try. I feel bad for returning it if it is such an easy fix ya know? Well, somehow it made things worse. I think it's slightly more level, but now both the right and left don't really want to stay pegged in and his torso feels looser overall. Definitely not interested in keeping one this way for $50 so just going to hope the 2nd one is correct.
