In an Extend operation, you are only able to Extend a partition using contiguous, unallocated space that appears to its right, otherwise the option is greyed out. However, by moving the unallocated space from partition to partition, any standard partition can be extended.

ok, how about i boot in to linux, shrink it in front of the partition allowing the w7 partition to extend and then extend the linux out on the back side, would that work?

Honestly It doesn't sound like it would. I would just remove the ubuntu and extend what you need and then reinstall ubuntu. Unless that's just out of the question
