Should've just gone with a U-Haul hitch.:shaking:
Seriously...sounds a little odd to me. If the hardware was wrong and it is at a sloping angle, you might want to check the stress on the attachment points.

The hitch should sit level as long as the vehicle is level if not it throws the geometry off. If your kit was missing washers maybe it was missing a spacer or something else. I usually let a hitch shop install mine because then if something is wrong I have someone to carry it back to. That said I have installed them and usually it is pretty straight forward and comes out fine every time.
