'64 Swing Arm Question

I am redoing the rear end as part of my Disk brake upgrade... I have the rear end out and have removed the swing arms on both sides to replace the bushings. The brackets on the frame have two sets of holes, one above the other. The arms were in the upper one, the rear end was really low. could I move them to the lower ones without getting into other issues? I am also replacing my pan hard bar with an adjustable unit with a new leveling bracket as well as a set of new springs. Shocks are already new.

Your comments appreciated.

The upper hole is correct for cars, lower used for station wagons from what I hear.

I don't know if using the lower one would raise the rear or not. It seems like it just changes the pivot point, as the spring sets the height.

I was able to get everything out and new stuff back in... Springs, swing arms, panhard bar and bracket so far. Disk brakes going in next!
