Unless you've converted to RWD, you can't do this, or at least I'd strongly recommend NOT doing it. The center diff will not be happy.

Most performance applications look for bigger front than rear though. (Less understeer.) A big PIA for balancing wear though. Most of us church mice can't afford it.
