Default Shock Help

I took apart my rear shocks and changed out the fluid and cleaned everything. I put some 90wt gear oil in and it worked perfectly. So i decied to do the fronts now and when i took apart one of them there was no top c-clip in one of the shocks. does anyone know what size is used so i can get one? thanks

**it is for the firehammer mt **

I ended up getting the firehammer mt shock rebuild kit but i guess I found one of those small differences between the firehammer mt and the clones. My shocks are not tapered at the bottom and the only things from that kit that will work are the plungers and the 4 e-clips. Hope this helps anyone else with a clone trying to rebuild thier shocks. Does anyone know who makes these shocks? Also, the 90wt gear oil works awesome. much better then the stock goop that was in there.
