Loosen the springs a bit.

Raise it using the whammy bar, then stick a rag or something to lock it into the floating position flush with the body.

tune your strings.

if you do that, it should sit flush with the body, and you can always get it professionally set up...

EDIT: the buzz... maybe adjust the action? Or possibly the intonation?

Well.. Im holding my floyd rose up at level height with a bit of plastic at the moment... At ive tuned it up normally... And fixed the action so there is no fret buzz.. But if i remove the bit of plastic the floyd rose just goes staight back down again

So there's still too much spring tension. Loosen the springs, or if there's more than three remove one. Before you do anything though, what gauge strings are you using and what tuning?

How your springs are placed. Like, are they straight, on an angle, etc.

Is the bridge diving or lifting - I've assumed it was lifting because you said you wedged it. If that's the case then the last thing you want to do is add springs, and if theres 3 in there that's as low as you want to go which means there might be another problem.

Wait.
You don't have all 6 strings on, and it's lifting?
That's your problem. You don't have enough string tension to equal the spring tension. Put on all your strings

Yes, that may well be a contributory factor...
