Do not stress. This is one of the easiest things to cure. Do NOT pay some loser 60 bucks to do it. Any human being can do this. Actually, if you want to pay me 60 bucks to do it, I'll do it in 3 minutes, but keep it for a day to pretend it was harder than it was. Yes, people will argue about stress on the tremolo and other nonsense. As far as I'm concerned, I've always worked on my own guitars, for almost 20 years, and I've never had problems with these "stress" on tremolos and screws.
The problem is generally this: the strings are pulling harder than the springs under the trem, hence hte upward pull on the trem.
Here are possible remedies:
1. Add another spring on the bottom of the trem. Do this by loosening the strings, then add the spring, then retighten the strings. I tend to loosen the strings, then use the whammy to make spring attachment easier.
2. Fine tune the adjustment by tightening/untightening the screws that hold the plate where the circle end of the springs go.
3. Do it until it's at a place you like.
4. Pat yourself on the back.
