Tremolo on JS1000 sticking out a ton?

My tremolo is angled really funny... the bridge is at like a 45 degree angle to the body and my whammy bar hits the volume knobs(is that normal???) I tried screwing the screws on the saddle for the springs underneath in like ibanezrules.com said, but I didn't want to do it too much and strip the wood...
I'm using .009 strings like I always have on this guitar.

Are you tuning to standard pitch? How many springs? Add another...

Or did you just recently change strings and then the bridge got all out of whack tuning up?

Yep. Standard tuning, 3 springs on the back.

Thanks
crank in on the trem springs and start backing down the tuning. Be prepared for a real pain in the ass because as the springs adjust to the tension then you'll have to readjust them and retune the guitar, over and over until they settle [when they stop pulling the strings sharp or flat as they adjust].

What's he mean by that? Crank in on the trem springs?
And readjust the springs? How does he mean?

I wrote the last 2 paragraphs, it's just the easiest way I know to correct the problem. Adjusting the angle is covered here

And plenty more reading for you in this section
