Hey, if your's is like mine, you pretty much have to change it.  Mine is 
jacked up!  It's all thinned out, and looks like it's been tightened 
off-center a couple times.

I got some responses to my question about this before (thanks), but 
nothing that could really send me into a hardware store with the part # 
in hand to get a replacement crush washer.

What's the easy way to get a handfull of new crush washers?  I know the 
easiest way would be to ask the dealer, I just might do that.
