Springs...

I have a 99 UV. The claw screws are all the way in and the bridge isn't quite level. Anyone know where i can order some of the shorter springs for the bridge? Also what are the 2 lengths of springs. Thanks.

Re: Springs...

Re: Springs...

Well I'd like to keep the spring retainer on...the 4th spring on an edge lo pro of course would go into the threaded hole.

Re: Springs...

1 screw will hold the retainer on fine. But I do prefer less springs. What I did was take a vice grips to the spring claw to bend it a little shorter, worked fine for me.

Re: Springs...

Don't forget if the springs are parallel you can put the in an arrow formation using the middle three lugs of the claw, that might just give enough extra tension to get the bridge parallel.
