    This is a fairly simple task. It took me about 30 minutes start to finish, but I had all the tools in easy access and am pretty handy. It took longer to write this review than to replace the 2 struts.

    You may read that for some applications there are a left and right strut. If you look at struts on your tailgate, you will see a left sticker (blue) and a right sticker (red) on the 2 struts.

    The 4699 has a blue sticker and fits (lines up to) the left side perfectly.

    It will also fit the right side, but you have to do 1 thing so it will fit (line up): rotate the cylinder 1/4 turn counter clockwise. I did this by putting the rod end (JUST the clevis part) in a vice (gently very tighten) and turning the cylinder with my hand 1/4 turn ccw. The mechanism is not very tight, but it was tight enough so I couldn’t hold the shiny rod end. DO NOT TIGHTEN THE VICE ON THE SHINY ROD; if you do you will have ruined the assembly. You could also hold the rod end clevis with a pair of pliers too I suppose.

    After you rotate the rod assembly it will align perfectly to the right side door fasteners.

    You will need a 3/8 inch drive ratchet and a T-40 TORX BIT SOCKET. The T-40 tool is needed to remove the 2 fasteners in each strut.

    Prop the liftgate fully up with a 2 x 4 or get someone to hold it FULLY up. The liftgate must be fully extended, with a little force to remove and replace these struts. If you remove a strut without propping the liftgate it will fall on you and the strut will probably be flung sideways with some velocity.

    Remove the bottom fastener first, then the top one.

    Install each strut with the cylinder end up and the rod end down (as was the originals). Tighten the top fastener first, then the bottom one. Use a little finesse and common sense so you don’t cross thread the bottom fastener; as the assembly is slightly longer that the attachment fastener spacing.

    Good luck and don’t hurt yourself!

    Works Great, Need a 2nd Person to Help Install, December 21, 2009
    By 
    Tech Dude “jimbocobb2” (Orlando, FL) –

    This review is from: StrongArm 4699 Liftgate / Hatch Lift Support, Pack of 1 (Automotive)
    I got 2 of these to replace the lift supports on the back hatch for a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It definitely helps to have a 2nd person to help hold open the hatch (even though we used a ladder to put under it to hold it up). I screwed in the top screw partially and then was able to use my hands to rotate the bottom part to the proper angle to use this item for either the left side or the right side. Actually both sides needed adjusting a little bit for me to use them, even though they had a blue sticker and were closer to be aligned for the left side as they came “out of the box”. It was also a little tricky getting the 2nd screw started…had to get the hatch open just the right amount to have it lined up perfectly….that’s where the 2nd person helps also.

    But once installed, it works great (and I’m no mechanic) !!

    This review is from: StrongArm 4699 Liftgate / Hatch Lift Support, Pack of 1 (Automotive)
    I started out very happy with these, but see updates at the end of the review.

    The hatch on my 2002 Grand Cherokee developed a nasty habit of falling on my head because the struts were starting to lose their lifting power. I bought two of these, and in about 20 minutes, the problem was solved. They have been installed for about a month, and seem to be working just fine.

    Installation was easy. The old struts were held by two bolts on each strut. Once they were removed, the new ones popped could be screwed in. You may have to hold the tailgate as far open as possible to install the strut.

    A couple tips from the installation:

    1. Get a helper. Much easier if someone holds up the tailgate while you are trying to replace these.

    2. You will need a Torx bit- not sure of the size, but it was the largest one in my kit.

    3. The existing bolts are on pretty tight. A drop of penetrating oil on the screw made it easier to remove the bolts.

    4. My Torx kit only had a cheap “screwdriver” handle to hold the Torx bits. I ended up destroying this handle because the existing screws were in so tight. It is probably worth buying a ratchet wrench setup before you start.

    5. One tip- when installing the new strut, it helps if you snug up the upper screw first. This slightly lifts the strut, making it easier to line up the bottom screw.

    Hope that helps. The whole process was actually pretty easy- if you can use a socket wrench, you can do this.

    UPDATE: 9/9/13

    After 7 months of relatively light use (I open the tailgate roughly 3 times per week), my opinion of these has gone from 5 to 1 star. They still work, but they make so much noise I am ashamed to open my tailgate within 100 yards of people. Opening or closing the gate will result in a very loud screech from both struts. Not an annoying little squeak, but a very lout, annoying, nails-on-a-chalkboard screech.

    I have tried a film of oil, silicon spray and creative language, but nothing will remove the screech.

    I finally tracked down the StrongArm supplier, AVM industries and left an email message on their customer service website.

    Update 9/24/13

    I guess after 2 weeks, they have no intention of replying to their emails. I called their tech support number 800-790-5438. No answer, but left message.

    Update 9/25/13

    Another phone call, another message. Still no answer back.

    Update 9/26/13

    I passed the Amazon 30 day window, and thought I was stuck. But I contacted Amazon customer service and told them my story. Within an hour I received a reply, and Amazon is taking them back and providing a refund.

    So, a happy ending, but I will never touch another product made by AVM Industries.

    Update 10/16/13

    Got my refund, less a 20% “restocking” fee. Chalk up $7.50 to “experience”

    And Finally- 10/18/13

    After contacting Amazon Customer Service again, the refunded my restocking fee.
