i dont think those are cheap? especially to be breaking them.

just pull the whole strut out also and swap the whole suspension. might take longer but you will save the suspension and money in the long run.

just spray everything first before attempting this as some of them are stubborn.

best i can think of man

sorry

you need to talk to a tien dealer. I had a similar problem when i got my used tiens. Unfortunately for me, they no longer made the part that i needed. But, my Dad is a machinist so he made me some new rings...

yo man leave the guy alone u know he can't type what's wrong with you? do you have nothing better to do than post **** in ppls threads?

apparently not

i'd say contact the tien dealer closest to you and see if they can order you the part... otherwise you'll have to get them custom made at a tool and die place or something like that

I don't think they are special parts, Buddy Club or other coilover rings may fit as well. Or ya, contact Tein dealer, you'll be able to buy them, even if it means ordering from US

if a dealer can't help you, your best option is to talk to a machine shop and have them make some for you. it won't be cheap either way.
