Jem Tuning/String Gauge Question

I just picked up a Jem7 DBK off Ebay last week and will probably be tuning it to Drop-C (ala "Bad Horsie). Assuming I keep the trem floating, what string gauge would you recommend? Not sure if .010's or .011's will be better. Also, will I have to add a fourth spring to the claw? Thanks!

If you normally use .10s in standard tuning, use .11s...if you use 9s in standard, use 10s

Cool. Thanks for the info. After following Patrick's DBK development, I just may want to get me a chrome vine, too!
