Charleston Spar Tuning

I have a 9/10 fractional furling mast with aft-swept spreaders from Charleston Spar on my Beneteau 49. Forward stay is quite slack and head sail luff falls to leeward when going to weather. Would like to tighten forward stay.

Is it best to tighten shrouds on an aft-swept spreader in order to tighten forward stay?
