    Hmm.. Now you see in the first pic the springs are Paraller to each other.. Losen the Flody Rose lock and untune the strings.. and Put the first sprin across the 2nd Hook and First Pit.. Like .. Let the right side be there only.. Put the left side to the next hook.. Do the same with the second spring too.. Leave the third spring alone..

    Then Use medium guage strings and TUne the guitar.. THere must be two screws on the sides of the bridge.. Slowly decrease the height or increase it according to your comfort.. After this, Untune the guitar retune it and lock it..

    Job Done..

    k, its easy..
    first tell me in the first pic, can u see the springs? if no, urs is a problem out of hand.
    if u can go on to read next line...
    now that u can see..the springs r parallel which they r not supposed to b. so do this..
    let the middle one b like it is..*
    now figure out how u can pull out the other two springs n put 'em in the hook near the middle one* ...k? u get it?

    * we r talking abt springs.

    It wont look good if you change it. .Its nice this way.. I would differ with 6String here,..

    I would want the First spring 1st hook on left and the second on the Left side..
    Secong spring to be on the 3rd hook one the left and 4th on the right..
    The last shoudl be the same..
    Else the Floyd Rose Lock will have too much of tension..
