As far as you having trouble based on your pictures the whole assemble that gets inserted into the oval hole has to be tight, yours appears to be loose. If you tighten the assemble up and insert it in the hole. You then hold the screw in place with allen key or hex head socket while you tighten the nut, this will expand the brass fitting. It takes all of 5 minutes to do but I do agree the whole assembly could be better.
Right...it was loose for the pics as I decided that's when I was done messing with it lol. I'll give it another shot tomorrow, but it just didn't want to open up for me.

I got mine today and I am wondering if I should bother with it or just return it... I do not like how the shock mounts to the truck with just the ball and socket type of connectors they have. I feel like they will pop right off and scratch my truck. I opened it all up just to see what you guys were talking about. I was looking forward to my first mod but I am not so sure I trust this thing enough now.

Opinions needed!

So I took a trip to oreillys to after reading the deezee thread you posted in earlier to see what there sg314900ez looked like since I wasnt tripled with the on I got from.rock auto. It appears Sachs aka stablius makes 2 different kits using the same part#. The sg314900ez that oreillys sells is the same as the deezee kit described in this thread. The kit from rock auto has a different shock with ball mounts. The shock is much stronger than the kit I got from rock auto under the same part#.

Yes, I like it better and it lowers the tailgate a lot smoother, the only issue I see and was.noted in another thread is the tailgate cable rubs on the paint I will fix the rubbing by adding a piece of heat shrink on cable clip where it can rub. Keep in mind the one oriellys sells is not deezee kit but looks and installs just like it, if I had to guess stablius makes the kit for deezee.

I too am returning the rockauto kit and I bought a deezee (part # VEZD0001AA) from amazon today. Extra $20 but its better to get the peace of mind that I have the mopar part that does not have the ball and socket mounts. The picture they have on the rock auto website for the part I ordered is different than what they sent me so I am going to try to get my return shipping refunded...

Can I take rep back from 300Mag? LOL, I am just kidding man!
