Cheap lowering the yellow bird?

I need to fix my front caster angle period, so i figured why not try an experiment to lower the front end and scoot the axle a little forward.

I have the sky 10" tall as hell swap kit, and wanting to drill new holes in the spring hanger to lower it down. Then adjust the caster angle with some 4crawler shims.

Here is how low my hanger goes from the frame.

Here is sky's 7" vs 10" kit.
