So I just put .11s on my Strat and now every time I bend my bridge lifts up a little bit, obviously affecting the pitch of my bends and any additional strings that may be ringing. This was to be expected.

My question is: Is there anything I can do, short of adding another spring to the claw and bridge in the back to prevent this?
id say no. you need to even out the extra tension from the thicker strings, and the only way to do that i know of is to do exactly what you illustrated.
My Gear:
Gibson Faded Flying V
"Dante's Inferno" Iceman
Fender Hot Rod Deluxe 112

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.
You wouldn't necessarily have to add another spring. Try tightening the springs you have in the back already. That solved my problem when I put 11s on my Strat copy.
Thanks guys, for the ideas.

To AsShadowsRemain, how does one go about tightening the springs?
