Help: Changing strings on Majesty


I am trying to change the strings on my Ernie Ball Majesty from 7’s (the Billy Gibbons strings) to 9’s. The guitar originally came from the factory with 10’s, but I had it set up at Guitar Center with lighter gauge strings, so this is my first time doing this myself.

Since the new strings are heavier, the bridge has dipped forward. As recommended, I am trying to adjust the claw screw to get the bridge level with the body. However, there claws screws on the back are basically in as far in as they will go, so I am at a bit of a loss here.

Any suggestions? It is worth nothing that the guitar also does have 3 springs attached on the back.
