Welp, the rear door lifter/struts/whatever you call them finally gave
out after 18 years. I'm guessing one gave out about a month ago when
the door needed some getting to the top, and now overnight the other one
failed. 18 years ain't bad, so I checked with Ford but they say it no
Anyone have a good recommendation for a decent replacement make? I have
replaced these on hatchbacks and remember them not lasting that long.
The parts places around here are O'Reillys $34 for a pair, Autozone $52.
Rock Auto is $25, plus $8 shipping.
