    You must have changed the tuning or string gauge for that to have happened.

    The springs must counteract the tension of the strings so if you change one then the other must be changed to match it..

    Yep. Springs. I went through the whole exercise with my Strat after I changed to a higher gauge set of strings (I like 11s and it came with 9s). To eradicate the effect of the trem completely turn the claw screws all the way in and then put all five springs in place. The bridge will sit flat and not move. To get to where you want back away from that set up to where you want to be. Worked for me anyway. But that is for a Strat. I have not played around too much with my S2 Custom. I love it the way it is!
