Rubicon Express LA to custom Stretch?

Currently have a Rubicon Express long arm and will be stretching it this summer. The problem I have is that Rubicon express only offers the rear radius arm stretch and they say it will not work with my current 4.5 coils. What I am contemplating is making a set of extended long arms using square tubing and either johnny joints and/or a combination of the rubicon express joints. What I want to know is
1. Can I simply add 5 inches to the length of the current long arms? Will the geometry work?
2. Can I use the current brackets?
3. Any ideas on moving the coil buckets? What have people done here?
4. Would I be better off just doing the gen-right rear stretch kit and if so, can I keep the Rubicon Express center skid?

You will need to do frame modifications for a 5 inch stretch on coils.
