If you go with these replacements, I would suggest you first check your OEMs to see if one is more worn than the other, and if that's the case just buy one replacement...
Hi , my set arrived today and I just installed them, they look twice stronger than the OEM ones. One of them can keep the hatch up.
installation was 5 minutes , but for anybody installing suggest to put the ball joint screws first and then snap on the strut joint, as it is much easier to screw them on when not attached...
Also a little concerned about the strength of these supports, It was a little hard to close the hatch the first time, after that became easier.
Hope they last.
