I installed this same set-up 2 weeks ago and it works great. I would contact the seller, sounds like you might have a defective strut. When it is working properly you'll love it!

mine did the same thing, come to find out it was for the 04-08 trucks. They sent me a new strut and it worked fine after that, all the hardware is the same but the valving in the strut is slightly different due to the different weight of the tailgate.
