You have a couple of options for getting your crashes "up there", but first off, let's just say that if you like your crashes overhead, the Stealth Rack is going to start you off pretty low to begin with; it might be time to bring the cymbals back down to Earth, so to speak.

(1) Use an extended arm, or maybe one of Gibraltar's ultra-adjust boom arms:

(2) Use a multi-clamp extender post like this one, and then put any old cymbal boom holder in it (almost the same concept as the ultra adjust):

(3) (and this is pretty extreme) tear the tripods off one of your now unnecessary cymbal stands and use all three tubes to extend the height to where you want the cymbal. (Very last ditch, extreme, no-going-back method.)
