Yes, you do.

When in doubt, replace it. In almost every case, the cost of replacing an individual part is more than offset by either the cost of the damage if it fails, or the cost of the labor to replace it, or both.

In this specific case, it needs to be replaced. But the above guideline works pretty well for most other items.

Yes replace it, it is a high wear item and its only 15 or 20 bucks. Every top end you do, the little end bearing should be replaced.

replace it, just like everyone else said. to get a manual go to wherever you got your piston kit.
