Jem 555 New Tremelo system

Can someone tell me what the best replacement for the lo-trs II is.
Somthing that will just drop right in. I have no Stud/post cuase my lo-trs II broke the tips right off. Someone said a Ofr, but i looked and it looks like theres several models of them

The trsII routes are very shallow (mine is anyway) so an OFR original would be the safest option. apparently the OFR studs fit the trs screw things too.

Apparently? can anyone confirm this. Has anyone done this mod before?
My trsII is pretty beat up. can you still get good action with a ofr?

I just installed a LoPro on my 555. I just sanded the sides of the route to make it fit. And the post inserts are bigger. Get yourself a 7/16" drill bit. Some more info:

You have a Original floyd in a korean Jem 555?
if so
Can you tell a difference? ( i noticed it goes slightly out of tune with the trs2)
Can the action still be adjusted the same as the trsII?
Can you tell me any negative results you got from this?
and positive?
Got a pic of it?

[email protected] for any pics you got.
