It will make sled handling worse. You can lift it with drop brackets which are incredibly easy to install. Lots of people here will have pictures. But there aren't really any advantages of them, better to leave it stock unless you think it looks better?

agreed. some older cats have holes that are lower on the stock brackets but moving to those holes changes your suspension geometry

The Best thing you can do is update to a 98 or newer TSL skid.
Full instruction's are available here http://www.arcticchat.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=32042

Putting your stock skid in drop bracket's will only change the geometry of the suspension, the travel still stay's the same.
The TSL skid's have 13 1/2" of travel, which is considerably more than the 8"-9" of your stock skid.

Rick just a quick thought? if lowering the back with drop brackets can one use them for the front and how much distence will you get from the heat exchanger

Rear suspension brackets made mine ride better in deeper snow. It can dig deeper before it gets hung up. You gotta drop all of the 4 bolts in the rear. But the back 2 bolts are the ones to hang under the tunnel. Check to see if you have them stock a lot of older sleds did.

hi there the orignal holes on the front have plugs that come out right under the the orignal holes and on the back theres a plate under the running board as seen in pix that has holes in it as well so can it be lowered to the bottom holes front and back with out having any problems thanks 20101151118468_26941.jpg
