    thanks. Geez, those shocks are expensive and

    seems like a work to get it replaced. Well an another $200 for the wagon... this car seems like a money-pit.

    There are gas shocks, check out this link (m)

    Not sure if I picked out the correct link for your model, probably doesn't matter.

    528iT tailgate won't stay up, shuts on my head

    is there an adjustment ? THis seems like a spring loaded gate, no shocks. How do we adjust them to be stronger ? Both glass and tailgate slams down and its dangerous. Almost knocked me out today morning !
