OP, I just replaced my lifters with this part 51247250308, they are 40ish bucks each for the OEM, but there is a listing on Amazon I got mine from that are an OE supplier of the part for 23 or so each. Here is the link, they work fine if not a little too overpowered.

My old ones were loosing pressure, the trunk would fall on my head and come crashing into the car when I tried to close it. Worth the cash, not sure if the 40 dollar ones are exactly the same as what I got but I'm happy.

Here's a link if you are interested:

I just ordered two from RockAuto. http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/more...854&cc=1431850 $15 each. $5 shipping. Not bad. I did not want to spend $40!!! per lift support for the OEM. Talk about rip off.

Looking around found a set for $50 on ebay from a 2011 with best offer i could hit a $30 offer with free shipping.
