Has anyone had to replace Rear Tailgate Supports? Also, are those the same as tailgate struts?

Re: rear Tailgate Supports (volvo4life92)

by their nomeclature, struts should be what holds your upper door up and supports should be what holds your lower door.<p>However, I would only call the lower portion the "tailgate."

I had mine replaced under warranty at 60k kms. Wouldn't open all the way and bumped my head a few times...doh. I have seen universal struts sold at auto parts places before for much less. The new ones squeaked when closing if it was open for more than a few mins but a bit of lube on the seal and strut seems to have fixed it.

I have purchased aftermarket struts for several vehicles, always for much less and they have always worked just fine. Install is usually very simple.
