I just built mine with the ADO top hats. They are extremely helpful. I struggled getting mine together, ended up using my stock rubber washer thingy vs the new because I couldn't get the thing installed otherwise. Also, had to go get some grade 8 washers since one has to go up inside the top hat.

I used the Moog 81092 coils, kinda wish I went with a different coil. Although, it rides fine.

Do you have any idea how tall the pipe is that the shock bolted to? That's where I am having an issue. Also, what dont you like about those springs?

Not sure on the dimensions. I recommend reaching out to ADO, they are very helpful.

Springs are ok, but I feel like a lower spring rate would have been better. I discussed this with Chad at ADO and he recommended a few. I chose this since I have the Hefty Fab bumper and plan on getting a winch. It's really not a big deal, truck rides great. The spring "looks" like it has too many coils for this application, but that's just to my eyes, still rides fine.

When we're in the shop on Monday we can check the depth on ours for you. It might help to shoot us a pm or email so I have a reminder.
