I am thinking you are right, the hinges are mounted at a different angle now and are tilted farther forward then they were originally. If this is the case shimming between the hood and hinge will lower the hood but we are just guessing at exactly what will happen. Go for it and give it a try. You could also modify where it is mounted by pushing the metal in at the top mount so the hinge rotates back as it originally was.
