Bill, Thanks for documenting your experience with the aftermarket struts. I am ready to order the same ones but I want to clarify something first. Are you saying that on one end you have the "A1 M8" and the other end "B1 M8"?

I have the PlaneAround brackets FYI and am picking up the finishing kit tomorrow and FWF from VANs.

Is your setup perfect now or would you have ordered some other end in order to not have to do any grinding/modifying or another end to get the full amount of travel? Thanks a bunch

Here is what I ordered that works with a slight modification to the thickness.

Per Door:
1 each - BONOF50-100-247/530N Strut
2 each - B1 M8 Eye
