Anyone out there have to replace the gas struts that hold up the rear hatch? Mine seized and snapped off the ball anchor at the bottom (then sending the strut itself through the rear light housing). From what I've been told, I need to replace these things in pairs, but I can't seem to source any other than universal kits or the OEMs from the dealer. The dealer ones are a bit pricey. Anyone try the universal struts? It's not like this is part of a complicated system. I figure if it fits and has enough oompf to hold up the hatch, I'm good right? Anything else for me to consider?

Thanks
