first of all, I'd like to apologize if this is in the wrong forum. I'm kind of a noob right now

back to the point. I replaced my strings on my Ibanez RG, and now there is this weird problem, the bridge is rising, a lot higher than it is supposed to be.
What I did at first was loosen a bit of tension from the springs, that only helped a bit. Later(2 hours later to be precise), I found out that the guitar was out of tune again, so obviously I tuned it. But I noticed that the bridge had gotten even higher after tuning!

my thoughts are that tuning the strings are pulling the bridge up, I can't just stop tuning my guitar. Are there any Ibanez experts out there that can help me out?

If it's pulling up, you should be tightening the springs not loosening them.

^ this. Make sure to detune the strings some so they don't break while you tighten the springs. Tightening them will pull the bridge closer to the body.

Loosening the springs will let the strings pull the bridge away from the body. Tighten the springs.
