Strings problem

Hi my name is sebastian and i just changed the strings on my ibanez jem from 9 gauge to 10 and the tremolo angle just wont get lower (to being parallel to the body as it should). I have an edge pro tremolo and the manual says i have to tighten the screws in the back (spring cavity) but the two screws are tightened to max. Do i have to get another spring or should i change the springs positions?
hope somebody can give me advice on this, salutes.

Re: Strings problem

Yeah, either adding a spring or rearranging the ones you currently have are your only options really. How are your springs configured now? Probably wouldn't even hurt to replace the ones you have. Check the link and scroll all the way to the bottom. He lists some spring configurations according to string gauge.
