I ordered these to replace the original lift-gate supports because one of them squeaked so bad that it was driving me nuts... :)
Tom's had the best price of the stores I checked and they went on very quickly and easily. I just put them on during my lunch hour today at work and took the Bronco for a spin to see if the obnoxious noise was gone or not; it was!!! The hydraulic cylinders lift the gate very well and hold it up, no problem.
This is definitely a good upgrade and good bang for the buck.
I've driven my 77 sport for 17 years and always thought that the squeaks were from the tailgate or the way the top was secured to the body as I've removed and replaced it numerous times. I decided to give these a try over my original lift gate props. My squeaks are all but gone, your milage my very but this was surely the root cause in my rig and these bad boys did the trick. They even perform better in the cold than my wife's 2013 Volvo liftgate props. Install was a breeze though it does take some force so do the the ones that are harder get leverage behind first.
These things are awesome. I no longer wonder if my liftgate is going to fall and smack me in the back of the head. Install was a breeze and took about 10 minutes.
