Not a problem installing. Would have neen a bit eaiser with a metric deep well socket, but got the job done with an open end.

easy install, work great
These install in place of the factory torx studs that ate permanently to the old oem lift gate hydraulic mechanisms. I just popped these in then snapped in the new gate lifts and bam, done.
ProsEasy install, comes with washer attached
ConsNo sealant or loctite to seal the threads....i had to add that myself. It would be nice if that were included or at least noted in the description as an installation note.

Perfect fit for 2006 Grand Cherokee factory, replacement liftgate struts
Forgot to order these with the factory, replacement liftgate struts. These ball studs fit my 2006 Grand Cherokee perfectly. Once installed with the new liftgate struts, the liftgate opens by itself even in very cold temps. Thanks for the great service.

The 05 Grand Cherokee replacement lift gate struts need a new ball type screw also. I called up Justforjeeps.com and the person knew exactly what I needed and was very helpful in completing my order. I received the parts the very next day in the mail. Great service and got the right parts for what I needed.
ProsThis is the correct screws for the updated cargo lift gate struts.

Works great for older WK's
I needed new struts for my lift door in the back and it said these would work with the struts i was about to buy. Since i couldnt use the old bolts that are taken off with the star screw, then put these on, and the new Mopar struts from JustforJeeps.com and they worked out perfectly with the mount on the struts. tighten down perfectly, and should have been the factory piece in the first place, but these are excellent with the 05-07 WK Grand Cherokees that have struts needing to be replaced.
ProsWorks as good as any other Mopar part...PERFECT Easy to install, no hassle what so ever, and they fit with the Mopar struts perfect No need to do anything to the car, just unscrew the old ones and screw these in!

Glad I bought these along with liftgate struts
The old struts had integral ball studs. These are needed to replace those. The old struts are easily unscrewed. These ball studs go in easily.
ProsEasy to install and required for new liftgate struts.
ConsThe website rightly notes that these are required. No explanation is given as to why these ball studs are required. Make sure and order these if ordering replacement liftgate struts.
