Ok,

So yesterday I went to guitar center and bought some new Beefy Slinkies cause I want to tune to drop c A LOT. But when I was putting them in they literally pulled my tremolo system almost OUT of the guitar body. Springs not strong enough or what?

Just a ****ty tremolo system?

Any advice is appreciated!!

Larger Guage Strings = MORE tension required to get into tune.

Add another spring, AND/OR Tighten the claw screws.

This, preferably tighten the screws in the tremolo cavity

Yeh, bigger strings mean more tension, but lower tuning mean less.... So...

First just get the bridge relativity close to parallel. ( Don't worry about tuning yet...)

Once the bridge is closeish to parallel, tune the first (low) string to a C, Continue to tune/adjust until the bridge is parallel, and the first string is tuned.

Keep doing this one string at a time until all strings are in tune and the bridge is parallel.
