a new setup... was there an old setup? what were those angles?
What bindings are they? are they also new? Im asking because when i tested the new K2 Formula bindings. They were completely redone and made about an inch taller. i could feel the thing digging into me through my boot.
Or as Snowolf said forward lean might be funky.
Or Your muscles need to be worked in.

this is a new setup. it hurts in the back of my calves the most. the boots are used, and fit well. it is a ride DH, and no, its not backwards

You'll have to be more specific I think. Where does it hurt when going toe-side? Sounds weird. Have you tried tweaking your bindings on the hill by small amounts? Go for small angle changes and try a run or two. Like you say, when you are standing your feet are 'turned out' more than the angles you have set.
I stood at approx stance width and angled my feet out til it felt right to squat down, like my knees and everything were in alignment and comfortable. That gave me a place to start.
Go back to looking at some youtube vids of how to set up bindings for your height and favoured stance perhaps?
I ride a 158 and am 5'11", my bindings are centered on the holes and it feels perfect, not too wide or narrow. 6'1" on a 156 doesn't sound crazy but if anything centered could be a bit narrow?
Hope that's some help!

what was it at last year? What exactly hurts? Your knees? your toes? your pinky finger? hard to diagnose.
have you any kind of foot issues?
Might be your boots. Are they New? Did you try them on before buying? Are they the right size?
IS it a Park Pickle? = is your board Backwards?
You can ride your board at 90 degrees out doing a spread eagle if you want.

Help with my stance?
So i just took my new board out, and my stance does not feel right. It almost hurts to go on my to side, and is very easy to go heel. I usually feel like i have to stay on my toe side, in order to not catch my edge. How can i change this? right now, its at -15 15, centered, and with equal over hang on each side. Any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks!
