Hatchback lift ARM Struts

My hatchback no longer stays open with temps drop into the 40s. I've seen a few other posts about obtaining replacement ARM/struts. If I decide to replace mine myself is there any tricks or instructions for doing the replacement? Thanks in advance for any help.

For reference, the OEM part numbers are shown below, with current pricing:

Current Rock Auto pricing, for history:

ULTRA-POWER (economy) $7.62
STRONGARM (standard) $21.79

Note that Rock Auto does not list quantities, so the Strongarm could actually be more expensive than Amazon if 2 are required.
I ordered 2 of the Ultra-powers on Rock Auto (~$15 for the set). Will report back with fitment/performance.

Verdict on Ultra Power lift cylinders: would buy again.

Note that I had to clean up the lower mount bracket holes from minor manufacturing imperfections, but other than that they were super easy to install. They are much stronger than OEM.
