Question Anybody here know much about replacing sound files?

Hello as I've played warrior for several years I would prefer it if Hamstring still sounded like it used to before this expansion. I've looked through the process of replacing sound files and have done it without trouble for a few files(Colossus Smash, Execute, Cleave) but when it comes to Hamstring it doesn't seem to ever work. The current soundfile I believe is here:

http://www.wowhead.com/sound=60936/s...amstring-swing

and the old soundfile for hamstring is here(the one I would like to use):

http://www.wowhead.com/sound=3092/maimimpact


I download the maimimpact soundfile like the other ones and enter it into World of Warcraft>Sound>Spells like the others ones and rename it to SPELL_WR_Hamstring_Impact and it doesn't work. I realize there are three soundfiles for the new hamstring and tried labeling them stuff like SPELL_WR_Hamstring_Impact_01 similar to how it worked with the other ones and that doesn't seem to work either. Here is a look at my sounds folder with everything working except the ones labeled as Hamstring:

I realize this is a really specific and possibly tricky request but just figured I'd float the idea by here to see if there was anybody with knowledge on this kind of thing as I probably will never solve it. Thanks to any who try to help in advance.

Appreciate the help as always, was sure I wasn't ever going to get this one done. The sound replacement worked 100% but now I'm getting the sound effect included with my Colossus Smash somehow. Know anything about how sound files work together like that on attacks?

All good, I think it probably had it before as well with the old sound and I just didn't notice but it wasn't very distinct like this one is. My guess is that it combines two or more sounds together when you hit somebody with Colossus Smash and one was the same as Hamstring which would make it really hard to somehow get it with one of the spells but not the other.
