Prop up the hood in the middle with the non-metallic stick (just to be sure you don't arc the battery terminals). Pop out one metal retaining ring on each end of the strut with a slotted screw driver and pull the old supports out. Take note which side the rod protrudes from the housing. The retaining rings on the new struts are already in place and don't need to be removed. Just align the hole on the strut to the peg on the hood and pop them in. Then give them a little tug to make sure they hold. You won't be disappointed with the quality either. They hold firm and operate well.
One word of warning: Make sure you keep the stick propping up the hood in place while you do the second strut. Thought the first one may seem like it is holding up the hood by itself, it doesn't take much for that hood to drop on the back of your head. Yes, I'll be feeling that one for a while.
an exact match for the originals.
FYI: This fit my 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited just fine.
The liftgate is the most difficult of the three to install, but the only difficulty is making sure you have the right torque bit (T-40?) for your ratchet (I borrowed it from a neighbor). Once you have that, it's as easy as removing two bolts and bolting the new lift supports in. I was worried about the supports being under pressure so I cautiously approached putting them in, but it turned out to be absolutely no worry at all. When the liftgate is open, the supports are in it's rest position so you don't need to pull or push on the supports at all. About the only thing you need to do is rotate the support arm 1/4 turn so you can bolt it in right. Also make sure you bolt the support in exactly the same way as the original (canister side up).
The other supports are easier to put in. The rear glass has only one bolt per support. I used a T24 bit which was a little small, but it was all I had and it worked good enough. I did this set on my own with a stick to prop to glass. The hood supports were even easier. No bolts required! You'll need a friend to hold up the hood, but just pop out the thin metal housing, wiggle off the supports and reverse the process for the new supports (took maybe 3 minutes to do both).
I am so thrilled to have these new supports in.Read more ›
