Sounds like you also changed the rear derailleur, maybe? The new "rapid-rise" deraillers are low normal, as compared to high-normal of older high-normal ders. Hope you put on a new, longer chain, or added a section to cover the 7 tooth larger cog on the cassette. Are the shifters and cassette both 8-speed?
Should be able to adjust the der to work, even if it is a rapid-rise, but it would still be shifting the reverse of what it used to, if that is the case.
