New plan (and an ironic one, given how many damaged kickstands I just went through): If I mill/sand down the kickstand mounting surface with a 5 or 6 degree sloping angle to the back, I can effectively tilt the entire kickstand, raising the rear feet. Since this will also kink the mounting bolt, I've ordered an M10 stainless steel leveling washer (just a big version of the cupped washers used on V-brake pads) for the upper bolt from McMaster Carr.

Fingers crossed this works. I may shorten the kickstand eventually, but I know I can make a fairly significant change simply by tilting the stand.
