If you do that then you will need to increast the strength of the springs. You need to find stiffer springs to do that if you had the stock springs on there.

Badboy2 the reason the shock shaft isn't going in when you fill it up with oil and put the top back on, is because you have to bleed the shock by pushing the shaft up and down with out the top on to release the air bubbles out of the silicone before you can put the top back on. P.S don't fill the shock all the way to the top neither, only fill it 4mm from the top of the shock shaft.
