On my 91 I have RK shocks and lowered the rear 3" with the blocks. I have not run into any problems. I do have a chain and that gives me more room back there compared to a belt.

Yep, it works. I have the stock length (13 inch) RK shocks on my 1200N with one inch lowering block since I wanted the higher ride height.

Tamarack has the 1 inch or 1 3/4 inch (I think) versions. The fat shock body requires you to add spacers to move the shock body outward a bit to clear the belt guard on the right side, and moved out just a bit on the left side so the top mounting eye clears the fender strut.

Aloha,
Huladog
