So we now know it is not as straight forward as it seems. I paid a mechanic $90 (a hour labor) to swap it out. Easier to work on if you have a lift. They complained that they should charged more...

I use clear silicone gel and 3M tape strips on mine. Just add a mound of gel in the ends and every 5 inches. Then tape it down overnight.
