My Williams U-12 has a vertical that lowers string 5 B to Bd. I want to add the 9th string B to Bd. What lower hole for the rod on the changer will have the least resistance? It’s a triple lower changer.

The lower hole furthest from the changer axle

That will mess up the voicing of chords that need the 5th string lower only, on the B6 side of the tuning.

It is easy to re-tune that change when you need it for B6.
Nice to have when you want it for E9.

I have 2 vericle lever for the X lever. The right vertical is to the right over pedals 5-6-7 and only the 5th string B to Bd is engaged.

The other vertical to the left is over pedals 1-2-3 and currently moves 5th string B to Bd and I want to add the 9th string Too much tension on a vertical will lift the guitar.
