Default Rustler 'e' Suspension Part

This goes out to anyone familiar with traxxas and/or rustlers. Is there an easier way to get the 'e' onto the rod for rustler suspensions? They come apart fairly easily, but putting one back onto the suspension is quite difficult. Attached fotos of the suspension rod, spring retainer and the 'e'.

I normally use a flat balded screwdriver and some elbow grease.

If you are flush with money, you can buy a tool specifically designed for installing these E-clips. Search for "e-clip tool" at www.mcmaster.com

Duratrax also sells one that might work.
