Yes. You must adjust the springs in the back until the bridge rests parallel to the body.

I'd get this done by a professional, I did this, and it takes so much ****ing around to get it right, after I'd restrung, taking about 10 minutes at the most, the tuning and setting of the Floyd Rose took nearly an hour and a half, as you have to keep adjusting til you can abuse the FR and it returns to perfect tuning, otherwise you'll constantly have problems when it comes to tuning time...

yes but i plan on using the same strings i have on it. all i want to do i unlock the nuts and fropit to c, then lock it up again.

couple aspects, first you will have to loosen up the springs in the back due to lack of tension from drop-tuning. then let say you have 10s on in E standard, going to drop-C is a very dramatic change in tension, so mostly truss rod adjustment will be needed too or the neck might bow in a month or so. also i have noticed that action might need to adjust too because strings get spongey in drop-c, so you might experience fret buzz that you normally wouldn't in standard. all can be done by yourself maybe except the truss rod part. and as far as taking a long time to set up FL and stuff like that, you do that enough you will be able to set up rather quickly.
