406sbc new cam 306s coil bind questons

So I recently bought a new comp 306s solid camshaft. I have some springs from a build I was going to do on a 350. So here is was I have now. Double hump heads, speed pro flat tops, 5.7 powdered rods. But to what my main question is.

The stuff I have now is the 306s cam solid The 306s is a .555 lift 306 duration 260 @050.solid lifters I bought from the performance shop in town. and a set z28 valve springs. Here is info on the springs o.d 1.260 I.d .880 seat pressure 110@1.700 90@1.750 open pressure 325@1200. So once everything is together It recommends .022 lash. I figure with .22 lash lift will drop to 533. This will hopefully put me into a safe limit on my springs.

Here is the main question if I do run into issues is there a way to get away from coil bind with out changing springs(building on a budget). I head that there are retainers that sit higher up on the valve stem. I hope I have put enough info to get some help. I know I kinda rambled on to sorry about that.
