The feeders from outside are in rigid conduit (1.5 2), not to mention all the 1/2" conduit that would have to move. You would attempt to move all that stuff ?

That does make the project trickier, but not impossible. The large conduit probably goes to a meter base. If so. the meter could be pulled, feed wires disconnected and the 2" nipple removed. A replacement nipple 1 1/2" longer then gets screwed back in place lightly while the spacers are installed. Unless you have an absolute forest of EMT into the box, there is usually enough give in the EMT to allow modest movement. If that is so, then the new nipple gets tightened, feed wires replaced, meter installed and you're in business. In the worst case, some wires in the panel could be temporarily removed and offset conduit connectors used. Would that work for you?
