I had this happen to me and was able to slide it back in....just make sure you didn't snap anything if it came far out...you'll know something is wrong if you see transmission fluid on your drive way, or running under your car all the way to the back of your bumper, lol

I ended up putting some on in the rear. I dont think it needed them but figured what the heck may as well
Thanks for the reply. I’ll go ahead and order some for both the front and back. Did you use the same size silencers front and rear?

No they were the next size down from those. Cant remember the exact size
I used the Spoon silencers and they didn't do crap to silence. It still hear the coil slap. I'm going to put Tein ones now that they are more robust. Did you buy 2 sets for the rear? Or just 1 set which you only applied 1 per coil. Do you by any chance have a pic of the rear coil so we can reference where you placed your silencers.

are you hearing it in the rear or front? I had only heard it in the front, but still ended up putting some on the rear just in case. I put three on the front, lol...I had extras so figured why not. I'll try to get a pic tonight of it all for you
