The lower mounts on the RCD relocate the shock's position some.
Other dilema....good luck finding coilovers that'll fit our oem shock location...others have tried to do this on Off-Road Rangers (offroadrangers.com) and failed.
As with the RCD kit, and just like the pic above, the coilovers are longer due to modifying the OEM shock mounts (and RCD kit "lowers" the a-arms with the front crossmember bracket).
This is all easier said than done. If it was just that simple you'd most likely see or hear of people doing just this versus shelling out $2000+ for a t-bar to coilover conversion kit!
