Once they seperate, there isn't too much strength in the strut tower.There isn't any connection between the body and the strut tower anyway, there is a small gap - that prevents vibs from the chassis coming into the tub. Something would need to be done and I think that would have to involve welding so it wouldn't be a bolt on conversion.

This will definitely be something to consider, I say at the top of testing kinda thing....I have seen COUNTLESS trackers/sidekick develop extreme negative camber from the stress of just the Strut on the towers....Moving the coil springs will now add all of the weight of the vehicle on that thin original tower.
MY fOX SHOCK REP HAS SEEN THE TRACKER AND SAID IT WAS OVER KILL ON THE SHOCK AND HAD NOW PROBLEM WITH IT.
Another think to keep in mind is the strut tower will need to be braced very well. It wasnt designed to support the weight of the vehicle.
