Damaged Synergy TRE - Ok to use?

Do you think these are still ok to use? I think the dust boot and spring will still grab, but not sure if grease will oooz out. Worse case, I will have to overnight new Synergy TRE's today. The photos are from my Synergy draglink. thanks

I would file the "points" smooth so they don't wear through the boots and run them as long and there is nothing wrong with the joint itself.

Or dremel the notch smooth. The boot is more to keep dust out, not keep grease in.

Correct. I got a little silly with a pickel fork and f'ed them up. I need bigger hammers so I can break them loose in the future. Another item on my list. I do have a spare TRE, but not two. I'll try the file or dremel route to clean up the edges and give it a go.

Generally, I just give the knuckle a good whack with a hammer right where the TRE stud goes through, inline with the arm. Rarely need a pickle fork. Short handled 3-4lb maul works great.
