The original 120mm cups were made to fit all spring sizes from 2.25 inch, 60mm, 2.5 inch ID springs. On 2.25 inch ID springs, the extra width of the 120mm cups is really wasted bulk.

Here is a video of the cups in action:

Niceeee......I still haven't manage to get moving on them yet. I got a second set of top mount adapters I need to machine the lip off first. I've been managing just fine with my current height but still wanted to do them for piece of mind.
