Talk to Larry Navarro or Blockers Performance about a drop base. Otherwise the only other option I've heard of but never seen tried is to use an early stock Toronado 455 intake. They are lower than other stock 455 intakes. (The carb base damn near sits lower than the top of the intake ports.) But they don't perform well.

Talk to Larry. Do you have the electric choke? I think he said it will work with them unless it has that.

NOT sure how to tackle that one myself, try all the different shakers till one fits. buicks are not in the t/s just the older firebirds.
