I agree, it is perfectly possible to cut the foam yourself, you will need a staple gun to re-fit the cover. I am a short ass so I cut 20mm out of the foam and lowered the back end by another 30mm by using a 10mm spacer between the shocks seal head and the snap ring that holds it in place.

I think I used a bread knife, if you have an electric one that might be worth a try. Use a marker pen on the foam down both sides to that the initial cut is nice and flat, you can then 'sculped' at bit of the sides if you want, personally I would not take more than 20mm off. shortening the shock is worth looking into too!
