so my guitar was in standard tuning and i decided to drop it do full step down, but when i did so the trem obviously sagged way down. do i need to tighten or loosen the screws to the trem? Any other tips to doing this? Thanks.

Loosen them. No more tips, I don't think directions get much easier. Rember that, on FR bridges, spring tension must equal string tension, for a balanced bridge. So if you loosen your strings, you must loosen the springs.

That's right. You want to put less tension on the springs, so move the claw in the direction away from the guitar neck.

These guys are correct although for some reason the screws in mine are made of brass so they got stripped really easy
