Tremolo problems with Jem-555

Could it be that there is a problem with the truss rod in the neck?
Every time i tune the guitar and use the tremolo it goes out of tune when i make a dive, it sort comes back in tune (not quite) when i pull the tremolo.
New trem-springs makes no difference.
Tightening all sort of screws ( on the neck or the top saddle) did not resolve my problem.
the tremolo knife edges are brand new as is the tremolo (did swap the lo-trs II with a lo pro edge)

Please help

Try putting a small dab of vaseline or chapstick on the knife edges.

Re: Tremolo problems with Jem-555

make sure the trem is level then in tune lock it down use fine tuners to make sure its in tune (dont touch whammy at all) then once u get it in tune whammy it down 3-4 times grab the g string 2nd fret bend it then check tune if e a d strings are flat then u have to tighten that side where the springs are and if its flat also on the g b e side then same thing tighten it just a hair and if all of them are off a bit just tighten bot screws after that whammy it check tune then finetune it and then u should be good...
