While changing to winter tires, I saw that on one side, there is a little plastic "ring" that pops out. It seems harmless but I just want to make sure.

Another thing is that the "base" is not flat; it is slanted out. Do you know if this is normal.

Another question is that since I see the marks on the bottom, it seems like the top touches the bottom. Does it touch in normal driving condition or only when getting into a deep pot hole?

Thanks.

spring seat... they are poor quality and demolish over time, combination rocks and dirt trapped between the plastic seat and the control arm/spring, or heat from the exhaust.
the passenger side breaks down quicker.

cheap part, made of recycled plastic.
dont worry about it until you hear clunking sounds over bumps, not a safety concern.

if youre going to change the pair, install some timbrens and replace the stock bump stops while your in there for improved load handling.
