ghetto body lift

My story.

Put an ARB bumper and Warn winch up front, with appropriate OME shocks/springs. With use bumper seems to have sagged slightly. R&R bumper to no avail, so noticed two bolts in engine compartment that attach front body to frame. Pulled those bolts and took a pet bar to lift body from frame, inserted several washers on each side between frame and body and reinserted bolts. Probably got a 1/4in lift. Enough to raise front quarter panels from rubbing on bumper.

Anyone see anything wrong with this?

BTW, damn thing is now settling back and soon problem will return. Might have to cut away at my quarter panels just aft of the wheel Wells? Any suggestions?
