Trouble going from drop A to standard B on 7string

I have been playing in drop A for a few months but tonight decided to tune it up to standard B. The only problem is that my trem is completely jacked forward and my springs are all the way tightened. What should I do to lower the pitch of my trem and still get it in standard tuning? Currently have three springs installed.

I guess if your spring claw is screwed all the way in, you'll need to add another spring, and adjust the Tremolo.
If you don't use the tremolo, you could block it off and put as many springs as you can on.

Is it a RG7? If it is, and has a lo pro or a edge pro, you could take out the thing that locks the springs in and put 2 more in.
