Sway Bar Bracket Spacer

So I'm converting my 4" to a 6" lift.. The only current limiting factor will be keeping the sway bars in the correct geometry (keeping the arms parallel with the road). I already have the frame brackets flipped to the bottom of the frame. What will need to happen is the bracket be dropped 2-3" or a longer link is required. Seeings I have access to a milling machine, I've decided to make up a spacer for between the bracket and the frame. Does this seem like a good or bad idea to you guys?? Is this a common problem for anyone? If it is, I might make a decent size batch of these spacers, and would be willing to sell them out for very cheap, maybe put some on ebay for people like me who don't like buying a whole kit! Any input would be greatly appreciated!
