ive been using 10-46 and 11-52's on my guitar(ltd ec 400at) for... ever since ive got it and i just put the zakk wylde 10-60's on cause i like bigger strings... was this overkill? is my neck gonna warp? i also tune in standard, step down, half step down, drop c and d and all that and i switch back and forth quite a bit... is my neck in trouble? i also heard kind of a pop/crack one of the times after i stretched the string and retuned it.... i need advice...

Immediately, no, but the uneven gauge, if not set up properly, will put uneven tension on your neck, which in time, can warp it. It really depends on how well built and strong the neck is.
well its an ltd 400 series... roughly 700-900$ i bought it for 789.99 canadian
Check the neck...see how the new strings effected its tension and just how it sits.
well... i can somewhat bend the headstock sideways, and the strings are higher off the fretboard near the bridge then at the nut which its always kinda been like that
i really really wouldnt mess with it, stick to the gauge for the tuning ur in, if u plan to have that guitar for a long time i guarentee that much string cahnging and those huge gauges will kill it down the road
