If you want to lower it more than 3/4" or so, you'll have to relocate the rear mount and the hole in the body. There are several threads in the archives detailing exactly how it's been done by others. Some claim that a slight height reduction of 1/2 to 3/4 inch can be done with sheer force, but they must be alot stronger than me.
Lowered 2" with 2" FunFord drop butt mod. Enlarge the 3rd leg hole. I was able to cover the old screw holes for the trim ring for the 3rd leg by careful placement and redrilling the screw holes. Hoop trim rings were exactly the same place. Note that I've mechanically connected the 3rd leg but am not relying on it to work as a rollbar. I do not track this car and have run it for some years with no rollbar.
