So i'm making a parts list to do this for my touring. Firstly, how can i tell if they are going bad? mine stay up, but i have to lift them to full position before they do so. Im also unclear about how many struts there are total.

I think there's 2 small ones (for the window) - PN 51248190688 - ~41$/each
and also , and 2 large (for the gate itself) - PN 51248220072 ~ 67$/each

Grand total of 220$ for full replacement. (ee, gawd!)
