Front Suspension

I have a 1984 camaro and it had a 4cyl, 4 speed. i just recently put a v8 with an automatic. my question is should i do something with the front suspension? the bigger motor dropped the front end down a little bit. not sure if it is going to hurt anything.

if you don't mind the lower look, and you still have lots of ride height, it will be ok. but if not, go for the v8 springs like T2B suggested.

You'll need an alignment though. The bumpsteer is off as well as the camber curve will wear the inside of the tires out.
