Spacing the sub-frames?

I know this might be an odd question, but I would have it imagine some has done it or at least thought of it.
Has anyone ever tried to add small spacers to the sub-frames to gain a little bit extra height? Maybe 1/2 inch?
My X5 is lifted already with the spacer kit over the struts/shocks, but was looking to get just a little more body height. I was thinking of making spacers for the front subframe, the transfer case cross member, the drive-shaft center support bearing and the rear sub-frame. They would just be little aluminum or steel pucks the would go between the body and sub-frames. Any thoughts?
