Not sure how well that would work. Yiu can soak uop about 6 inches of the extra length at the tial end. But the rest will have to go forward. Which means that you will have to push the front hangers even further away from the frame as it tapers toward the front end. Lot of stress introduced there. Should eb doable, but will require careful attention and a bit more fabrication work than when these springs are put under a mini.
