Edge III Floating Trem ?? Guitarists i need help

so i have an ibanez rg350ex with the edge III floating tremelo, and the action was feeling a little high so i took it to sam ash and the technician said my bridge was a little high. But he also said i needed to adjust it when i got new strings. This seemed weird to me cause isnt adjusting the bridge just adjusting the springs in the back?? anyway, anyone know how to adjust the springs in the back and/or lower the action without causing any problems w/ the guitar? thanks.

god i really ****ing hate the floating trem i wish i didnt get it.
I just put a **** load of post it notes (wood block is better) and blocked the trem. Im happier with it blocked its worth not using it imo


this is mine i just used an eraser to show the size it has to be to get a good knife edge.
Around this roughly

to adjust the string height, you lower the studs that the bridge pivots on. If your bridge is too high up, you can screw the spring claw in more, or add another spring in the cavity. Keep your string gauges consistent when changing strings (don't switch from .9s to .11s) unless you want to have to re-setup the bridge each time.

You're talking about two different things and getting confused. To lower the bridge and lower the string action you adjust the bridge piece for that string until you're low but not buzzing too much like he said before. Leave the big springs in the back for the tremolo alone.
