    I actually started with 3/8" but had to cut another 1/8" to let the thin stop get in between the pipes and get the pipes aligned ... so maybe my initial measurement was off, or it didn't go as far down into the bottom coupling as I thought it would.

    Exactly what I did. I didn't find it very easy since the bottom coupling was set in cement and the pipe just above the top coupling was vertically constrained by the Y (?) going through drywall. Basically I had to get a 10 1/2" pipe into a 10" almost-rigid gap.
