Question 454 with suspension question on my 72

installing a 454 on my 72 camaro, it has a 350 . Would i need to make any adjustments to my coils because they are original ? Since the 454 is heavy would that cause my car to get lowerd even more .? What kind of coils would you sugest ?
Also i had my front bushings done along with alignment . The shop says that the alingment is at the bset they can get it . But my car pulls slightly to the right . When i am on the freeway it shakes a little pass 65 . What else can i do ? <img src="graemlins/spank.gif" border="0" alt="[spank]" />

What do they mean, "The best they can get it"?

Did you have upper and lower control arms done? Does this car have strut bushings? Did it pull or vibrate before the work was done? What did they say about the ball joints, idler and pitman arm...drag link...box adjustment...brake condition. Do you have good tires on the front of it?
