Loose Whammy Bar

I just bought my JS1000, and the whammy bar is loose. It won't stay in position. I have no tuning problems or anything. I just want the whammy bar to stay in place without gravity pulling it down so that it is always perpendicular with the floor. Any ideas to fix this? Rich I'm sure you have a solution.

Thanks, I knew that it had to be here somewhere. Is placing new bushings on the only way then?

nope, actually.
but if you want to keep things as they've been designed for, then it is.
