These are so much better than the bulky stock ones, so much lighter and it took me literally 5 minutes to put the new ones on. If you have never taken struts off, it is very simple, get a flat head screwdriver and in the middle of the strut at each end where they snap to the socket that holds them in place, there is a little clip, slide the screw driver underneath it and it pulls away from the strut, pry it and simply slide the strut out of the knuckle, keep in mind to hold your hood up at the same time, one strut will not support the weight, repeat that 3 times and your done. It is very simple if you know what to look for. Do not try to pry them off or pull really hard, that will only cause damage, That little clip is like a c shaped metal clip. You will be amazed at how much lighter and how much better looking these custom carbon fiber struts are. Great addition to my C8. These are top notch!! ThIs is a must have for your car.
