Moving Control Arms - will doing this break my Jeep?

So, I've got a Core 44 axle that has some pretty big beefy CA mounts. I'm thinking of drilling another hole (or 2?) in the mounts and moving my rear lower CA up 2" and forward 1". Looking at the pictures, you think it'll hold up? My CA separation at the axle will decrease from 8.75" to 6.75". On 35s, with 37s hopefully not far off.

I'll check for clearances with the axle tube and e-brake line at full droop, etc. Doing this to move my IC / decrease anti-squat.

I've had a little bouncing while under throttle on some climbs. Trying to get rid of that and be more stable/planted.

It should be fine, the mounts are strong and you have a relatively weak drivetrain so I would not be concerned about ripping them off. Just make sure your arms can go short enough to fit it.
