Can someone help me hunt down some parts for an Admiral washer, model atw4675yq0? One of the suspension rods snapped, causing the tub to lean to one side, and chewing through the tub ring at the top of the tub. The ring I've already got the part number for but I'm having problems locating the item number of the suspension rods (I can find the picture of what I need on the diagram (mainly the long metal rod) but can't locate the product.

Also, on a related note, it appears as through each rod had a zip tie around it,maybe for vibration dampening? I don't know if this is normal or if they were supposed to be removed at installation but each rod is bent in the same spot (where the zip tie goes around). I've attached pictures to more clearly explain what I'm seeing. Finally, where do those metal springs go? They seem to just be hanging out wherever...

Thanks for any help you can provide!

Here are the suspension rods you need. (newest substitution)

I always suggest all 4 rods to prevent unbalance load. You will have to replace them eventually chasing them one at a time. Ugh

Also delete those zip ties, bad idea whoever put them in as you see the results.
Replace with these to center the tub and dampen sound.

There is a repair video in this link to show proper placement.
