Has anybody replaced the power lift gate struts on an L320 with regular gas struts? My right side has failed (retainer broke, came off the stud and jammed, now has a sizable dent in the tube). I never loved it as a feature, and if I can save a couple hundred bucks by just going with a “normal” open and close behavior I’m all for it. Are there gotchas, or is it a straight swap? This is a 2012 HSE Lux, so no separate glass opening.
