hey mate, i spaced up the bottom shock mounts by about 2-3"
the shock pretty much has last say on how much drop you'll have. (theres plenty others that hold it back, but the shock is the main player.)
by pushin it up, it allows it to go down further.
it limits your up travel. kinda like winding up the torsion bars on an IFS rig.
so if your gona do that, make sure you extend your bump stops so that the up travel is being stopped by the bump stop, not the shock. or you'll end up busting the shock. i was lucky, i just bent the pin of the shock.
next issue you might have is the coil leaving the housing at the top.(asuming yours are not retained at the top)
at first i just welded some 12mm bar on the side of the housing, but it would never seat properly and was really, really noisy when it did, and i ended up snapping one side off. im currently in the proccess of making up some proper dislocation cones. but i couldnt do that until i did the body lift coz there wasnt enough room between the body and coil housing.
the not so cheap way out is to buy longer shocks and coils.
