Lock ring you mean the threaded collar piece? The old ones were destroyed... These are late model strut housings with late model front inserts. I had tried them in my stock housings and found out the diameter issue a while ago :p. the diameter will prevent the strut from going in at all so I got these used housings off a late model

The collars are brand new OEM :s

Strange part is that it looks like the struts are flush with the top of the housings, so I don't see how the collars could possibly fit :s

Ya the diagrams are pretty messed :p

Project as a whole has slowed down considerably with the extra distractions of summer but hoping to get ahead soon!
