Here's my problem. I have a set of Zakk Wylde signature boomers. (011 014 018 036 052 070) My guitar currently has Alice 9s. Do i need to adjust anything (truss, intonation, etc.) when i put the Boomers in? Thanks in advance!

Please dont tell me that your going to tune that standard.
Tuning the ZW-Low set anywhere near DROP C is crazy, the tension will rip that neck of yours back and your bridge WILL buckle.
You WILL need a complete setup, and you WILL need a new nut.
The 70 gauge 6th string is nearly twice as thick as your current 6th string, and has more than twice the tension (since its a large core drop tune string) of it.
Something that thick was never meant to be strung any higher than B (7th string on a 7-string) and even if it were strung at that tension, it would still be more than the tension of a .042 6th string.
