Just finished running cage through front of baja, I need to build shock hoops for coilovers. How do I set up ride height? How do I find out how tall to make shock hoops?

Ride height is about 1/3 sag of total travel, example.. my rail has 14” of travel up front limited by the tie rods hitting the frame top and bottom. I sag my front suspension about 4-5” at ride height so I have some drop out and plenty of up travel, I set my front towers by putting a 1/2” block between tie rod and frame and set the tower so the shock holds the front arm up that 1/2” to keep the tie rods from hitting frame at full extension, should it be strapped? Yes without a doubt but I’ve been running it like that for years and the shock has never pulled apart. Hope this helps
