the way i did it was, loosen the strings, then with the tremolo bar, pull up so that the springs aren't stretching, take the springs out, then put them to where 2 are on each side

We need more info man, was there 11s on there before? If you're switching gauges, you're going to have a field day with that bridge.

This is all important, but also are you running the 3 springs you have in a straight pull or in a teepee fassion?
Edit: Also, what tuning are you using for the 11's

ok, based on that, here is my opinion...
First off i wouldn't go to 11's unless you are a strong man (i'm a skinny little dude)
But if you are hell bent on 11's, I'd run four springs II II. Two on each side, but you will also need to re-calibrate the saddles for intonation, on an RG 320 you likely have an Ibanez edge 2, a pretty good vibrato. Also if you are switching to drop D, make sure you have the low E fine tuner down a good bit so you can loosen it for drop d, this will through the rest of your strings out a little bit though. This is gonna be a tough job, get your sweat rag out!

True! I have an edge III, I've learned to tame it to my tastes and have grown to like it, but it IS NOT FOR CHANGING TUNINGS!

I'll admit that I have a bunch of LFRs that perform better than the edge III, but with ALOT of love and experiment, I got it to work right... It was a BITCH though!

you may not even need to put another spring on. I thought I did but all I had to do was adjust the spring tension in the back
