Default WTB stock koni perches

my koni perches have begun to bend somehow or another. i'm about to go put new bump stops in so it would be nice to replace these too. 2 of them would be great. would also be great if they included the circlip thing.

that said, i'll also entertain offers for any kind of adjustable sleeve that will fit the koni. GC, ISC, ebay, whatever, as long as it will fit the konis. i need the front primarily. don't really have money for all 4 but throw it out there anyway.

one would think but it's not a very likely situation with my FM springs and stock bumps. called FM and they said it should be far from an issue as long as you have any sort of significant bump stop

i just figured they're low quality because nobody ever uses them, and the car really does get kinda beat on. the roads around here are extremely rough. i slam into the bump stops hard regularly without even meaning to. i do admit that coil bind may likely have played a role. i will be changing over to new bump stops when i put the new perches in and hopefully not having to worry about it anymore.

hitting bumps would put all the forces into the shock body like designed. coil binding would put all the forces on the spring perches...
