i would definately appreciate any input on this. Would putting 7 or 8 inch forks on a bike that had 4 inches as stock be a bad idea?

It would certainly change the handling of the bike. Think of how far it will tilt the whole frame back. It will also lay back the head tube angle to where your steering would really lag. The other thing is durability. Most frames built for 4 inch forks can't withstand the bigger hits that 7 or 8 inch forks are made for. With most manufacturers you'd void your frame warranty.
