Great video and very helpful. Just replaced on my wife's 2003 Escape. $55 for both and done.

For those following his guide, when tightening down the nuts and bolts, use a torque wrench at 97 in-lb.

Very helpful video… but you down play that you need ten men and a boy to push those shock arms back into position. Thank you for the video. If you are a women changing these out, all is super easy until time to put those shock arms back on.

When you reattach the struts, all you have to do is shut the tailgate and then open the window so it's the same length. You don't have to use force to reattach them. Also the strut clips don't have to be removed.

They make an after product now that is steel and not crappy plastic/vinyl or aluminum.
