*Do not* push it as far as it will go, push it as far as you need to achieve the effect you want and not a tad further. Control.

 

The divebomb is all about a sudden dramatic drop in pitch. Use them judiciously at shows, it can get old fast.

 

BTW Zakk Wylde simulates them well without a whammy by tapping on a note and then bending it into a pull-off to a much lower note. Also a great lick.

You can get a really nice rising scream(rather than falling) by pushing the bar down fully then touching a natural harmonic as you raise it back to regular height. Some people mask the sound of scooping the bar by sliding a note backwards and pulling off at the same time as the scoop.

There was a good Guitar World article on how he does his whammy-like tricks without a whammy. I'll try to dig it up when I get home tonight, but if anybody can track it down in the meantime, good article.
