Anyone know where i can get the rings that go into the grooves on bilstein grooved shocks? 1 of mine is stretched and doesnt stay 100% in the groove.
i tried ecs as well as some local places. the local places looked at me like i was retarded with the grooves in the shock. Thanks in advance

Is it beyond bending back? Try heating it up

its a very small part with a huge shear load on it

that one clip holds the entire weight of that corner of the car up

I'd not fudge it and get a replacement

I realize that, I have them on my car.
It's hard to tell without pictures or something if it is messed up past safely using them on the car
