Calmini has 1.5" springs designed for the S/R. It moves the front axle forward 1", so the tires don't go into the body when the suspension compresses.

But yes, longer brake hoses (and shocks), and either a drop pitman or a hi-steer would be needed, along with d/s spacers and extended bumpstops, maybe even longer spring u-bolts.
