    The original Fender Synchronized Tremolo was designed to float in the same manner. it's pretty much the only way to float a bridge when the bridge posts are not really adjustable.

    You may still need to re-shim the neck, as the string height will go up a bit, though it depends on how that particular neck joint is already.

    There should be easily enough saddle adjustment that shimming is not necessary.

    Done. I loosened the claw and reset the saddle heights. Super easy, and the intonation was only out on one string!

    Good deal. Yeah, shimming the neck is not necessary for that setup, unless something is whack with the saddles. Should always have plenty of room to adjust the saddles and make the action low enough to compensate for the forward tilt of the bridge.
