Yes, this is simular to what Shelby did. approx 1 1/2-1 3/4" results may vary though.

The topic has been recently discussed here. There's a link to a site that has a template that can be downloaded.... as well as a link to a place that sells those negative wedge kits that allows the upper arm to be dropped even more.

Good Luck!

With the combination of the drop springs and control arm relocation, the negative wedge system would be a worthwhile addition.
