I opted for the carbon fiber sleeves as well.

Thanks, my pleasure to serve!

The less expensive, the better imho. I'm doing this for me, not cars and coffee.

I wish MRT made a set of the No Drill ones...doesn't look like they do just yet. I have installed a few of those on a few family Explorers...

Honestly, this is the first time I had actually worked with rivets. I was sheepish at first but watched a couple YouTube videos and felt comfortable going forward. I stepped up the drill bit sizes rather than just drilling the finished hole for the rivet.

Installation was pretty straightforward worthy modification. :)

How do the struts wear out on a brand new 2020 Explorer already? I have 105K on my 2007 Explorer Sport Trac with original struts. The only one that needed replacing was the one in the bed that holds up the trap door.

You said it more politely ...............
So someone has a question and you’d be less than polite? GREAT forum quality right there.

He probably assumed since it was always standard on Explorers that the “latest and greatest” (And more expensive) would have included a very basic feature.

Ordered my QuickLift Plus struts this morning. Not crazy about having to drill holes but I have no choice I guess. Part 21-11036-02.
