Baja Ryder with offset hoop or monotube?

Does any one have any experience with these? I have regular old shocks right now and they are hitting the spring perch and have dented the shocks (lovely... right?) These have offset hoops and look like they might help. But for $50 I was looking at Rough Country's mono tubes which are about $50 and are inverted and would solve the problem too.

Any opinions?

I am at work so I don't have the jeep handy, but because I have the pinion pointed up because of the SYE kit the spring preach in the rear contacts the back of the shock when you are at full flex. Has a nice dent now. I will post a picture tonight.

oh, you didn't specify it was the rear, i was thinking front.
moving the shock rearward frameside might change the feel bc they are already angled back pretty good. maybe weld an extension bracket back a little farther than the stock axle side? or do a resevoir shock as they seem to have a smaller diameter

That's what I was thinking too - get a mono tube as the shock is inverted and the body will be up at the frame rather than the axle end.

That's the way I am leaning. Attached are two pictures of my problem.
