When I had a '97 it had retaining clips on all 4 corners. Maybe the previous owner added them?

I just went outside to look at my '98 and it has retaining clips on the front only (both sides).

Tuff Country (yes the brand spelled that way) is no help at all...

I've got to buy a new one. From a retail outlet, then send my broken one back. They will "test" it and then decide if they will credit the place I bought the replacement from (original vendor)???

This is no way to "warranty" your product. I give them a THUMBS DOWN!

Yes it is. But, it's easy to put one on the other side...

Well i tried to flip the shocks, but the bushing sleeve on bottom end thwarted me in my efforts. Just did the work for nothing.

I've noticed that not all springs will allow you to use a clip on the passenger side. The 4" tera springs I just pulled out the other day were cut appropriately, where as the 4" RC spring I put in is probably 1/4" above the top of the clip. Both brands were fully seated in the spring perches, and the top of the springs were in the notch on the perch
