The struts on our 2012 Limited Edge are getting weak. They don't hold the hatch all the way up. At dealership they seem ridiculously expensive. 

 

I have used some after market ones that weren't much better than these old weak ones on previous vehicles. Any non Ford sources with good strong struts? Any brand you recommend? 

 

Is there a good E Bay source for Ford struts?

 

Thanks

I would stay with Motorcraft for these parts. Others have reported problems with aftermarket.

Ebay has lots to choose from, for example:

Thanks....looks like they show one at a time, so I guess that means you have to order two....they aren't sold in pairs.

Which is a travesty, because these things should always be replaced in pairs.  But what can u do?

If you wanted aftermarket, these seem to be highly rated (macbwt approved as well):

$35 for two of them, shipped: https://www.rockauto...ft support,1404

You will want the Sachs struts, not the Monroes.

For those looking at replacing your rear hatch struts.....the Monroe's work great. Hatch goes up all the way...all on it's own now. A more than reasonable price.
