Nothing is available that would make it any taller. It'd have to be a totally custom job.

You're going to have to figure out a way to make your suspension sit lower than your chassis. The lower your suspension sits, the higher the ride height of the vehicle. The lift kit in question raises the vehicle 6 inches over the factory ride height by modifying the suspension. You are going to have to find a way to further modify it by dropping it all further down.

If the back is like the DS, then that would be the easy part as you would only need to add an additional spacer block.

The front though, you would probably have to either have a custom spindle built that lowered the hub mount location further down on the spindle, or you might be able to combine a Z lift with the current front suspension.

Either way, it would require a lot of fab work to properly do it without changing the lift geometry I think.

Post pictures if you go for it as I'm curious to see. :)

Exactly!

I'm actually debating on custom building a long arm suspension with a solid front axle for a Precedent and running a 27X10.5X14 TSL Swamper for a truck. For now it's just a random dream I have in my head that I may or may not ever go through with.

Maybe call jakes or allsports to see if they could make something. They may have already done it even though they don't offer it commercially. Might give some ideas.

I think the long travel kit from jakes will give you more lift. I hav ebeen looking at them, trying to figure out which cart to buy.
Sell the a arm part of yours and pick up a long travel. They are a little spendy for the club cars
