Hey all, I recently restrung my strat but unfortunately I think I mucked it up!

The bridge is lifted up a bit (ie not level with the body), and I'm thinking I probably wound the strings too tightly. It even effects the tuning of the strings. If I drop the low E to D, all the other strings go dramatically out of tune (none of my past guitars did this).

So basically, how can I fix this problem? I was going to mess with the springs in the backplate, but I thought I would come and get your advice before messing anything else up!

Thanks in advance.
flip it over, add a spring or tighten the screws.

how much you do depends on how much the bridge is lifted.
