Best fitting full circlip for 760X U-joint

Hi, I've recently changed over to alloys in my Dana 44 front axle. They are machined for full circlips, but I'm not able to find an exact match. Best I can do is find a 1-3/16" cirlclip that is .050 thick. The original half-moon clips measure out to be .056 thick. This has me thinking the caps will be fitting a little loose. Not by much though. Maybe not enough to matter? My question is has anyone found a .056 thick full circlip to fit a 760X u-joint? Sorry if this has been asked a thousand times already. I did a search.

I checked out the specs on that circlip and it looks pretty darn good, about as close as you can get. 1.50 millimeter thickness according to the listed specs, which converts to .059". That's just slightly beyond the thickness of the half moon clips supplied with the u-joint. If .059" turned out too tight, just give a little rub on some 400 grit sandpaper to knock off a touch and it's a perfect match.

Thanks a bunch

I received the Dsh-30st pa circlips this morning and tried them. Perfect fit. Got a package of 25, so plenty of spares.
