Default Larger "longer" front shock mounting ideas?

In need of some help. Need some ideas and pics of what you guys have done installing larger "longer" front shocks on the front of your cc01. I am rebuilding a new chassie / tub and dont want to have a bunch of holes in the front wheel arches trying out different ideas. What have you guys done and what has worked best. Thanks

Without putting holes in the wheel arches, the only way you can increase shock length is to use a longer bottom shock ball cup that is longer than stock when using the stock shocks. All my rigs I tend to stick with the stock shocks in the front. The stock arms and C's can only travel so far without mods to them. You can use a up to 4mm spacers between the bottom front skid plate and the chassis to increase height, but anything more than that tends to increase dog-bones from popping out, unless you are using CVDs and they have their limits as well.
