Default bosoz power supply cap question

I wanted to use larger value capacitors for C101 and C102 on the power supply board. I have some 2200uF Panasonics on hand, but the physical size of the cap.'s bring the cans into very close proximity of both the zener stack and bridges. Should this affect the surrounding components?

A comparison of the original 1000uF cap.s and the 2200uF caps reveal the following:

1000uF case size: 25x40mm
2200uF case size: 30x50mm

Thanks for your input.

All things considered, it will probably even help. More capacitance in a power supply tends to smooth out ripple. Go for it.
Proximity to the bridges and Zeners won't hurt anything unless you start getting into serious heat issues.
