1 or 1.5 inch lower upper shock mount?

Anybody knows if there is an upper shock mount (available on the market to buy straight away) that lowers the upper rear shock mount in a Defender about 1 inch (or 1.5) instead of two?
I know of the Expeditionwear and Terra Firma ones sold at Expdition Exchange and Roversnorth but is there one that just lowers the moun 1 inch (1.5 is even better) instead of two?

The thing is I need to install my new Koni Raid shocks in my Defender 110 and it is lifted 33 milimeters so I need to lower the upper shock mount a bit in order not to loose to much droop.

Thanks

Yes Ren, I have the bump stops sorted out.
They have been extended 40mm, so that the shocks do not bottom-out on compression.

The problem with the upper shock mounts is that I believe that if I lower them 2 inches (aproxim. 50mms) then I will probably have problems on compression since the Koni Raids are longer that the standard shocks I have now. That's why I want to lower the shocks just what is necessary and no more than that.
