No, I don't have the new struts yet, the olds ones just started failing suddenly yesterday. I'll go get them today and give it a try. The upper end of the strut is in a tight place on the side of the hatch, when I have more light I'll go take a peek. Thanks for the help. Any other hints on replacing the struts? I know I should do one at a time. what about extending or compressing the new strut? I assume they will be fully extended when installing and the weight of the hatch compresses them?
OK, thanks. Just to be sure, when you say "glass", you also mean the full Blazer lift gate too? The glass is a part of the lift gate that is separate. My struts that failed are for the entire Blazer rear lift gate.
Ready to accept!!!
