Tranny fluid change

I tried to change my manual transmission fluid yesterday when I noticed that there are crush rings on the fill and drain plugs. I called the dealer and they wanted $3 for each copper crush ring. Does anyone know the dimensions of the crush rings and if they are available at an auto parts store? My local stores didn't list the crush rings for my truck.

put grease on it and it will be fine......we use grease on the cylinder valve o-rings at work and they hold up to 360psi for years without any problems.....


just re-use the crush sleeves.....they are more than likely fine...
