Default Looking for some longer big bore shocks

Hey guys, trying to make a monster truck out of an o'donnell Z01T, ordered some 40 series wheels and tires, and mounted the big bore rear shocks on the front to help raise it up. Now I need some big bore shocks for the rear to help get it lifted. The o'donnell big bore rear shock length is 140mm. Im looking for something 160+mm (thats fully extended top mounting hole to bottom mounting hole). Anyone got any suggestions?

What about fabricating a new rear tower or figuring out how to put lower holes in it?
