65 Impala air bag susupension

I built my own air ride style suspension for my 65 Impala convert, but am having problems with front clearances. I made bag adapters similar to the ones that art uses but am having trouble to get them to sit properly in the upper spring pockets. Because the pocket is not flat, made to take the top of the coil, the spring adapter will not sit in a stable position. I have only seen the art kits in a picture so I am not sure whether the top of the adapter is flat or cut to fit in the pocket. Should have just bought the art kit but prices here in Canada are about 50% more by the time you add shipping and duties. Anyone got a solution? Even just a picture of the art kit pedestals for the front would give me a place to start. The art pieces appear to be flat on the top but could just be the way the pics look. Thanks. Brian

how tall your bags ?
some kits ,the plates block off the spring pocket all together and you use a shorter air bag .
on the longer type , if its a bolt through like a shock has , you eliminate the hole pocket and weld stands for the air bag assembly .
