    Nice fix! I'm glad it was simple and cheap.

    I just knew I'd come here and find someone ranting "why didn't you do this on your 2005 CL65 AMG?" Alas, no mention of it. I'm not sure if I'm pleasantly surprised or disappointed in our LT Blog Commenters...

    I hope you were given the struts for the decklid w/spoiler, it appears that they are different from the w/o spoiler Chargers.

    bc1960,
    The dealer ordered the struts with the car's VIN so these were the right ones. I knew this was an issue, which is why I went with the factory parts to be sure.

    Interesting that you would perform this relatively simple fix on the Charger yet you didn't on the CL65 but instead chose to complain about it severally.
