I'll keep everyone posted if I run into any issues. The hinge itself has a lifetime warranty. The shock itself may wear out eventually. I have a discount code in case anyone is interested. PM me.

Yes, the door opens to the first notch so you can still get in and out without lifting door up. I tried to get a picture of the new hinges but it's pretty tucked in there. Hope this helps.
