HELP! Bilstein shocks just delivered and I think one is messed up
 
3 Attachment(s)
Okay, I just received delivery of these and I was comparing the two, because one would go all the way down and the other wouldn't.

One shock is missing this metal peice, but I don't know if it is needed.
It prevents the black piece on the shock from moving down. Did I get a banged up shock or is this metal peice not needed?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Yes, they are the same, one is missing the metal ring that holds the black peice in place. I am returning both shocks and purchased from another vendor. I got these from Tire Rack.

Tire rack said they were on back order and then I called and they sent them right away...I ordered another pair through allshocks.com, I'll let you know tomorrow if that metal ring is around both of those shocks. I haven't sent the tirerack ones back yet, so you are probably safe. Also allshocks.com has free shipping and doesn't charge tax unless you are in Mass.

i think my grand total was ~329 after shipping... not bad for a full set of shocks, im ok with that price. I didnt get a chance to call and check if they are out of stock... the real killer will be the tires those are $$$$$ :(

I hear ya brotha. Did you get front and rear SRT8 sway bars? I'm up to about $600 total, but from what everyone says it will be a huge improvement. I'll take pics and let you know, everything should be installed on Monday. Luckily, my uncle owns a shop so labor will be under $100.

i havent even thought of getting those sway bars... I'm doing the lift thing so i havent really thought about mixing the two... im sure the shocks will be good enough

Got the second set of shocks and they didn't have the metal ring. I am guessing the metal ring isn't needed. I am still confused, but I guess I'll find out when they get installed.
