hey,
im pretty new with a floyd rose and was wondering what can i put under my bridge(i have a ibanez rg370dx with a edge III tremolo) so it wont go into the cavity of my guitar
any suggestions?
would a 9volt battery work?
and if so where would i have to put it under the tremolo or back into the routing?

Are you saying your trem is diving into your guitar?

Loosen the screws on the trem claw in the back.

You don't need to block the trem when changing strings, just change them one at a time. In all honesty blocking makes very little difference and doesn't really save you any time. Think about it, the problems with floyds mainly boil down to an imbalance of tension.

If you take all the strings off there's nothing to counter the springs and the bridge snaps back into the cavity, right? So, you block the bridge to stop it moving, take off all the strings and put new ones one and tune up....all good yes?

Not really, because you're strings aren't balanced against the spring tension, they're balanced against the block, which won't move. As soon as you remove it the system will return to equilibrium and you're still left with the usual 15 minute tuning headache. You won't need to touch the springs as they're already set right but it still takes a long time to get things back in tune.
