c clip o-ring question

Hey, just have a question on an 8.8 rear end. I'm installing an arb and 4.56's and when i pulled the axles I noticed that there was an o-ring in the notch where the c clip goes. they are shown in the owners manual and one was broken. I cannot for the life of me find them anywhere, my local ford dealership could not even get them. Anyways, my question is, do i need these o-rings? Thanks alot for any help.

don't worry about it.they aren't needed-they're just for a little bit of noise control.

Lowes carries O-rings.

I didn't bother reusing them either. I wouldn't worry about it.

If you have different thickness clips to choose from, pick the thickest ones that still lets the cross shaft slide in. Otherwise don't worry about it.
