Need the correct seals for fork 06' Marzocchi 888RC2

I'm replacing the seals on my fork and I've run into an issue. The seals from Enduro don't seem to work.

LBS has these. PRT FK6608. The catalog says they will fit my 888.

They don't seem to fit. The C-clap that is at the top of the lower stanchion prevents the wipers from seeding correctly.

The only other ones I can find are, prt FK9656

Does anyone have experience with this? If so will the wiper seed correct atop the c-clap?

Thank you for any advice!

I've never had a problem getting Marzocchi seals into a Marzocchi fork. Get the proper ones, the Enduros will wear out you staunchion anodising faster. Make sure the circlip is seated correctly above the oil seal and below the dust wiper seal.
