The front must be lifted with blocks on the stut towers, or strut tube extensions.... etc.

I suppose it depends on how many splines you skip. I remember a local guy here a few years ago used that method on his wagon and it was slightly higher than the 3" blocks he had in the front. Perhaps he skipped two splines on the reclock. I only saw the end result - I wasn't present for the actual procedure.
My brat is reclocked. Not sure how many we skipped, but it was a few. 4" strut extensions in the front, and the eyeball says the back is a bit more.
Definitely wasn't just 1 spline though.
It's not a small project. Here in the rust belt (this body has over 200k on it, AFAIK all in the midwest), we had a heck of a time getting them out. Also, the rear alignment is definitely not right now.....
