On the internal adjustable Koni's (orange struts) for the plain 5000S. The
split polyethylene rings were to be placed on top of the strut body around
the shaft. The ring is supposed to prevent the adjuster in the strut body
from turning if suspension goes into full compression. I think I put the
"protection cap" back on and used the nuts and washer to hold it on. But
I'm not sure since it was done a while back.

The fronts came with hardware too but I let an independent place put in the
front struts. Can't help you there.

Good luck
