Pros and Cons of a Ball Joint Flip

I would like to hear different opinions of doing a ball joint flip in order to achieve a hight lift of the front of a Pajero. From what I know it could give you like 1 inch more lift while avoiding a too odd angle of the CV shafts. But doesn't make it the link to the wishbone mounting weaker by using it not as it was technically engineered for? What are your opinions on this topic?

Found this little gem on youtube which visualizes the changes in geometry when doing the ball joint flip.
