I was able to purchase the liftgate struts for $119 and the smaller glass struts for $59. from mrlousstuff on ebay (with FREE shipping).
QUESTION though. In the past i did a bit of a solder job on the wiring that feeds the tailgate (button to release the glass stopped working). While i have the headliner down for this strut job is there a wiring harness (or section thereof) that i can easily install??
