Metal, should kick you in the nuts, after you catch it messing around with your girlfriend.
and then make a sandwhich in your house and walk out.

Yea you have to balance out the tension between the strings and the springs in the back. If you have any more, try sticking another string in the back, because I don't think a claw adjustment will fix that. After you do that, try loosening the claw a bit.

okay take a look at the back of your axe, there should be a cover (or not if you removed it) with springs under it. Now you should have 3 springs if you were to add more the tremolo would come back down, or the claw that the springs are attached to (with a little black wire soldered to it and 2 screws going through it) needs to be tightened, just turn the screws to tighten them into the body untill the tremolo comes back down to where you want it. Make sure you loosen the strings before you do this.

Given the amount that's raised I think it's actually going to need an extra spring or two. There's no point loosening the strings before you adjust the springs either - the very act of loosening them will send the bridge back to where it was so you'll have no idea if you're adjusting the springs correctly.

take the trem cover off and tighten the screws holding the claw into the guitar.

i used to be a mod, then i took an arrow in the knee.
