Alright, I properly strung my strat and made sure all the contact points are well lubricated and stretched the strings. It stays in tune very well, but after using the whammy, all the strings go slightly sharp or flat by the same amount (by 3 cents). So I think the spring tension needs to be adjusted, but I don't know if it needs to be tightened or loosened. The bridge is floating a little.

Just a little float to the bridge is a good thing, in my humble opinion. Maybe tighten it just a little bit.

tighten just a bit, strats trems tend to go out of tune a bit when you use them

Oh, and if it goes flat, just tug up on the bar a bit, and if it goes sharp push down a bit. It works.

its probably coming out of tune because youre pushing the whammy to hard

strech your strings
i dunno if it works the same for the strat trem but for the floating trem it helps it keep in tune

Make sure the strings are not binding in the nut. If they are you can lube the nut or you have to widen the string slots to prevent this.

Try only using the two outer screws as pivot points.
