what if i break these rocks up and put them in the back of my cube. would that be a better decision? Tomorro i'm gonna print out a picture if my old rockscape and try to re create it..it was almost perfect! but if i cant get it im gonna have to come up with somthing new and might need to get a few rocks out.

I'm an anal-retentive-live-rock-mover. As long as you don't take out a lot, or if you're just repositioning it and it stays wet you'll be fine. Live rock looks way better when you get some corals on it!
