Hi satoth2,

Here are the instructons.

TAILGATE SUPPORT STRUT REPLACEMENT
1.With the help of an assistant, use a flat-tip screwdriver (A) to pry the support strut clips (B) from each end of the support strut (C) at the tailgate and body, then release the support strut from the pivot bolts (D). Do not remove the clips from the support strut.

2.Set the clips (A) to the original position, then reattach the support strut (B) on the pivot bolts (C) by pushing the support strut onto the pivot.

Guys:

Thanks a lot for the response and instructions. This couldn't have been any easier. Start to finish, 9 minutes to replace the support struts. I'll be recomending you to my friends. Thanks again, Steve T ;)
