    Have you been putting off replacing those tailgate struts on your wagon? Do you keep getting knocked on the head when the tailgate closes on its own? Here's your chance to get the job done easily and quickly. With these tools you can remove and replace the struts without removing the headliner. The tools are inserted next to each hinge and over the strut to give you the leverage needed for removing the old ones and installing the new ones.

    The toolset consists of 3 pieces:
    5 12 153 Plastic Protector (small sheet of plastic to protect roof, yellow, I made the clear one)
    5 12 152 Windows Strut Tool (turned and drilled aluminum tube)
    5 12 151 Tailgate Strut Tool (aluminum bar with collar and fulcrum pin)

    I purchased the toolset from for $121.95 plus shipping and used it once for my strut replacement.
    I am asking $100 plus the actual shipping amount for the toolset.

    Here are photos of the tools in use and the strut replacement process.

    I will include detailed, printed instructions for the replacement.

    You will need two struts of each type:
    51 24 8 190 688 Hatch Window Strut ($30 to $45 each)
    51 24 8 220 072 Tailgate Strut ($57 each)
