If you have the tools to do it, I say go for it!
At the bottom of the subframe, where the lowest bolt holes are. There is a factory weld joint, just grind down the weld on a bench grinder and the piece that has the bolt hole in it will come out. then cut about 10mm off of the frame and tig it back in. I dont think you have to worry about lining it up because the piece you are welding should have a smaller collar that drives into the frame. Hope this helps.
