Replacement for worn out OEM parts. No installation instructions were included but with a little common sense, it was not that difficult to figure out. The only issue were the retention clips and how they were to be removed. After looking at the new lift, a small flat blade screwdriver was all that was needed. They need to be replaced in pairs because one will not support the weight. Some means of holding the tailgate while you install the lift is required. The tailgate will also need to be extended to accommodate the lift extension for installation because compressing the lift strut is much too difficult.

So today I just bought a set of these Strong Arm lift support struts from the website and picked up at my local Advanced Auto Parts store and when I went to install them they were way too long even though the website shows that they are a perfect fit for my 97 Tahoe. So I found out that the exact size lift support struts are 4650 from Strong Arm not the C4557. So I took them back and also found out that they don't carry the 4650 so I had to order a different brand of lift supports that won't come in until tomorrow and pray and hope these other ones are the exact size for my 97 Tahoe.

        Product was easy to install with liftgate supported in the fully open position. Once installed, the new lift supports actually facilitated opening the liftgate and kept it in the fully open position.

            The Strong Arm Lift Support (Part no: C4557) is an exact fit for your 2002 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 4x4 LT and, the instructions to replace the struts on the back lift gate are, 1. Open the gate to the fully open position and prop it with a long object that is also strong enough to support the weight of the lift gate, 2. Remove the strut on one side be detaching it from where it fastens to the lift gate, 3. Install the new struts in the reverse of removal by pressing the ball on the end of the strut into the socket that holds it.

          will this replace my OEM liftgate struts for a 2000 Chevy Tahoe LT (new body style)? If so, looking at the picture I assume I have to reuse the original mounts/bolts? Are they sold in pairs or individually?
