I ordered the thinnest snap ring I could which is the 1.3 mm ring and it got into the groove. The replacement tie end is installed. I think my front drive is finished now. I then started to replace the tension rod bushings which were obviously degraded only to find the frame hole for the rod wallowed out and the rod worn through by about a third. Now I need a new tension rod. I took out the other side and found it in a similar state but not as bad. In fact, I could probably still use the rod. Still, I ordered replacements along with the washers that go against the frame. I'm now wondering if I need to do something about the enlarged hole in the frame. I'm talking about where the back end of the tension rod attaches to the frame with bushings, washers and a nut.
