They can be altered internally for length or travel ala flattrackers. Why not use those? DRZ forks are notorious for their many "needs".
Plus the rear end is still the weak spot with suspension performance (para or mono) and there is only so much to be gained upgrading the front end until the rear is addressed - even then there is only so much you can do with the rear.
