    Hi! I am installing Geiser Springs on my '17 and am removing the RPG Collars. Well, I am needing the original spring clip that came off the shock. I cannot find them anywhere! Does anyone have a set that they'd like to part with? Ford can't get them.

    I went ahead and installed WITH the RPG's but as I thought, it sits too high. Any help would be great.

    Thanks!

    Hey Matt,

    What size RPG Collar did you order? About to order the 1.5 RPG Collar, and I would part mine out once installed

    I have the 1.5" RPG. I liked them a lot. I actually got a set of the spring clips from RPG...they had several leftover ones. Hopefully get the front of my truck back down to normal this week! Thanks!

    I just got the adjustable
    collar installed and think the front end is stiffer than before. What are the Geisers going to give you different than the RPG?

    Why didn’t you like the 1.5” RPG Collar with the stock spring, and would you consider selling the RPG Collar?

    I have always leaned towards springs instead of collars. So when these came out, I was excited to try them. Nothing against the collars, just liked the thought of the springs!

    The front sits WAY too high with the Geisers and the RPGs. I am measured about 2.5" higher in the front. I have someone that has spoken for the collars...but if that falls through, I'll let you know. Thanks!

    Sorry to hit this issue again after several months, do you have a part number or a good description for the part that was removed. I may be going back down to stock and I will need that part as well. Thanks!
