Floyd question

I own an EVH Art Series guitar and I am trying to level out the Floyd bridge as I noticed it was not parallel with the body of the guitar. I got the bass side parallel, but noticed that the treble side is not parallel. In order to level this side out I had to raise the string height and adjust the spring claw in the tremolo cavity. Now my spring claw plate is on quite an angle as the bass side claw screw is backed off quite a bit and the treble side claw screw is screwed in. The treble side of the Floyd is still not exactly parallel, but I do not want to raise the bridge any more as my action on the high side is affected. Am I doing something wrong here?
Thx
Kev

Re: Floyd question

It's not getting equal tension that way.
