I'm not sure how they are supposed to be, but GAP sells new ones for $5 a piece
i checked my c-clamps, one of them is solid but the other one can be rocked a little left and right.
also they have a little belly, as if they are too stretched.
is it suppose to be this way?
or maybe i should get the special tool and compress them?
I would assume tight as hell because people that dont't have the proper tool pry then put with a screw driver and they go flying.
I'm actually replacing my downpipe on my mk2 today that has the clamps. I bought new ones from GAP. They don't sell junk parts. I'm going to assume these won't snap but I'll let you know.
