There is enough length in the bolts to stack a few washers between the body

When I installed The SJR 2" Lift Kit for the Front of my Subaru "BumbleBeast" I dropped the Engine's Crossmember " Inches to let the Axles sit as Straight as Possible; The SJR kit came with Rectangular tubes, Strong enough to be Placed between the Body and the Crossmember.

I also had to extend the Steering Shaft.

Kind Regards.

The same amount that the subframe spacers were.
