Is this a brinly or 3 pt setup? If it's 3point, the adjustment should be pretty easy, I'd it's brinly, we may have more problems.

If you adjust everything so the discs are level with the ground, it should be just fine. If you have the attack angle to hard, it'll tend to raise up in the back. I found the best was about 15-20 degrees forward on the outside, if any tilt (front to back) is needed, maybe a little bit high in the front to counter for how the back may lift in use.

I guess without seeing it, the best I can tell you is adjust the side that is not digging lower and sink the back a little. Also, strap a cement block to the top as a test, then see if it helps. Sometimes guys have just had to weigh them down a little.
