These replace the stock plastic pieces with aluminum ones.  This is mainly just to add some "bling" factor but also helps complete the shocks if your wanting to polish the shocks or have them anodized.

I will take you through the process.

Started out by doing a little drawing of the spring separator/retainer.

Then off to the old Enco lathe.

Drilled/bored the center and took it down to the largest diameter

Since the part is so thin it doesn't break off clean when you part it off.

To solve this issue without marking up the part with the jaws of the chuck I had to hold it in a small chuck with sand paper wrapped around the part and then put that in the lathe and machine it off. The sand paper trick allows for excellent grip, but doesn't mar up your part.

Once I had them figured out, I had them run on the CNC.
