    What everyone wrote about the zerk nut is true, the directions seem to skip whole steps and the zerk nut was one of them. Its really straight forward though and very simple to put together. After install I was very happy to see how well it worked but after a week it is starting to loose all of its hold back power. I imagine I will be trying to find another shock soon.

    Installed per the instructions. What a huge difference this made. I can use one hand to unlatch the tailgate and let it go. No slamming or straining to lower the tailgate. I am going to get one of these for my kids truck. Awesome product!!

    Worth it.

    It cushions the tailgate drop so you can just open the latch and let it go. It does nothing to assist in raising the gate though. Very easy installation. I like it.

    The instructions are a little weird about the nutzert. Also doesn't slow the tailgate as much as expected. It does help a little though.

    Nut Zert Not Certain

    Posted by Rich on Jan 13th 2014

    The instructions are very clear and thorough (with photos)... with one exception: If you've never installed a nut zert before, the instructions aren't clear if you are supposed to turn the Allen bolt or the nut to secure the nut zert. This is the only reason I didn't give it five stars.

    The EZ Down is to let the tailgate drop gently, not assist with lifting the tailgate. It's a clean install and it only takes a few minutes. One real plus to the EZ Down kit is it includes the Torx wrench, for those who don't have this non-standard tool in their tool box.
