Moving the lower mount more inboard should work. That changes your motion ratio some so you may find you need more preload or a higher spring rate to get the ride height you want, but that shouldnt be a big deal.
the one issue i may see is the arm strength,, with welding to it multiple times , it may affect the strength a bit, have to watch it,, see if it bends ,,
if it does, boxing it or or another way may be needed,,
all good,, i want to see this done, as it will push me to get a newer Explorer, and do both front and back,
imagine, all 4 corners on coilovers,,
The rear shouldn't be that hard. I am pretty sure you could use the original lower mount, and would only have to create a upper mount.
Alright I got the mounts moved and ready to install. Just going to have to wait it out, they are calling for rain here for the next several days, I heard they said something about a total of 4 to 6 inches of rain here.
