Clubs can change, there specs over the years, but i doubt its that much. It sounds like something has changed in your swing.
For example, my clubs were about 1 degree to flat for me, but that was with a very steep swing path and an outside to in swing. If the swing shallows out a bit, or changes orientation it could change the lie. Also, if you grip down on the club, that will make the club more upright as well, because your body stays the same.
Here's something pretty simple. Get some masking tape, or you impact tape. Put it on the club, then draw in a vertical line down the center. Now, get one of those ball marking tools, that you can draw a straight line on the ball with. Get a wet erase marker, and draw a line. Make sure that line is vertical on a tee. Then hit the ball. If the line shown on the tape is not vertical, then your clubs are off on the lie angle.
Also, your clubs will be slightly toe up at address anyways. Because the club shaft bends in the downswing, due to the weight of the clubhead, as well as your hands usually are a bit higher at impact than at address. So, don't worry about set up. Just worry about impact.
