RE rear top shock metal fitting

I have the RE shocks from kevins 2.5" BB kit and his site mentions that the Dostech shocks require making a new metal fitting because it is too big but mentions nothing of the RE shocks being too small. Anyone else have similar experiences and what did you use to fix it?

Was just going to grab any pipe and cut it to fit from home depot (equivelant). I wish his stupid instructions mentioned this so I could have had this finished tonight...ARGH.

Oh well, have the BB installed and everything done except the rear shocks.

Went to two local hardware store, checker, and napa and none had anything that could work for the sleeve. Finally went to Johns 4x4 (local 4x4 shop...) and they let me root through an old parts bin, found a couple that were long and they cut them for free

Kevin finally called back and his solution was to put 1/2" washers (one on each side of the bushing) to keep it in place. Wish he would have mentioned that earlier or in the online directions etc...

Either way now I know and so do you

EDIT: Kevin said he is currently in the process of making a new metal sleeve.
