Guitar Problems

I'm having problems lowering my bridge... Its sticking out like a mof... and I do not know how to lower it.. i've fitle farted around with springs and nothing happened... :S I'm confused with what springs are used for... I think there used to hold the bridge in place from ripping out if so I think i need an extra one.. i have a DXMG Jackson.. with a floyd rose bridge.. can you please tell me what i need to do in order to lower the bridge.. or if the doesn't make a hole lot of sense just say doesn't make sense and i'll just explain more.. lol.. thz in advance

The springs counteract the tension caused by the strings.
