1978 Ford Bronco Rear Shackle Mount Flip

i have a 6" suspension, 3" body lift on my bronco but the rear sits about 2" lower than the front. A buddy of mine said that you can drill out the 3 rivets holding the rear shackle mount and flip it up causing the shackle to point straight down and adding a few inches. Has anyone does this before?

I was going to just block the rear but this seems cheaper because 3 new bolts on each side are all that is needed.

Picture of stock mount, I'm talking about flipping the mount which is riveted to the frame.
