Taller feet ok for MK3?

I'm looking to replace the fit with a printed part and while I'm add it I would like to add a bit of height to increase clearance. Does anyone see a problem with moving the printer up slightly?

I would keep an eye on vibration & noise issues. Higher pads might introduce some instability. Maybe put the printer on a riser (or paver) instead of just longer, possibly wobbly, feet.

It's on a paver now. The clearance I want is between the surface the printer sits on and the bottom parts of the frame. Going up a little more (2-4mm) would give slightly more room for a cable from a camera or drawers or something. I'm thinking about these hard feet with felt pads on the existing concrete paver. My hope is that taller hard feet won't create more wobble, but then I am raising the center of gravity a bit so maybe it does?
