    What exactly are you asking? This is really kind of vague stuff :s
    In any case, strings aren't ever supposed to feel like they're about to break, so loosen them.

    you say youre using a FR trem..
    I´ve had problems tuning trem guitars that were set for .009 set strings,
    because the tremolo gave after too much (i.e, it "bent" to the very bottom when tuning).
    Had to add one extra feather to it so it could resist a set of 010 extra fat bottom strings.
    Note though;
    This was on a PRS tremolo, not a FR.. dont know how those behave..

    Exactly what hobo said, I cant tune high e, the string tension goes so high that it feels that its about to break and before even doing that ,the bridge tilts . Im trying to tune it to either a fullstep down or C

    Aha :)
    Floyd Roses are a bitch to set up... I used to have an Ibanez with a Licenced Floyd Rose (so not the real thing), and since I didn't use it anyway, I blocked the tremolo with wood in cavity with the springs. No problems then :)
