Shock Inboarding

I'm soon to replace my 14bsf with a 14bff on my Suburban. i want to go ahead and do as much as possible all at once. So here is my latest question - Inboarding?

The upside is longer shocks, that part is easy. What are the downsides? Will the street manners suffer or get better? Does sway become a bigger problem? Are there any mounting problems specific to certain trucks (Specifically a Suburban but others wil see this with other rigs)?

Anyone fabricate their own mount? i would love to see pictures.
Run when you can, walk if you have to, crawl if you must; never give up.

I inboarded my leafs 2 inches on each side and inboarded the shocks as well. It really took away a lot of stability on off-camber stuff. It flexes like nobody's business, but it wasn't worth it, imo.

I am re-doing it, and just using longer travel shocks more out towards the tire on the axle.
