I  lengthened my rear shackles by 1.25" to give about 1" extra ride height
grounding and hitting the bump stops was a real pain when touring  two-up
fully loaded.  I considered the extra leverage, but so far no  problems.  See  click on 'Ride Height'
and scroll  down


I used an extra spring leaf, bought at Pep Boys for adding to vehicles
pulling trailers, on my Midget, to raise the driver's side about 3/4 inch.
clamps on the bottom of the spring and is easily removeable later.

Only takes a few minutes to install too.

The Midgets tend to take a set after a few years of heavy drivers...

several days we had to live on nothing but food and water. W. C  Fields
