    These were exact fit for 2007 Honda Odyssey Touring. The install was a mere minutes and they work like a charm. Not cheap when replacing 2 of them but they please the wife so all is good.

      Comments about Strong Arm Lift Support:

      These were a perfect replacement for the OEMs on my 2007 Honda Odyssey EX-L. The originals simply did not work one day. After a bit of research online, I came across these as being compatible with the OEMs even though the Advanced Auto Parts website indicates they are not compatible. Using the great online discount on the website, and the fact that these were already priced below any other place, it was a no-brainer to buy these online using the discount code and pick them up at my local store!

        Very easy to install, but requires at least one other person or a steady way to block open the lift gate to prevent from closing while installing the struts.

        These struts replaced the originals on a 2006 Honda Odyssey EX-L, even though the online tool and store computer doesn't list them as applicable. Believe me, they are and they fit and perform very well. I had to rotate the shaft end fitting 90 degrees for proper position. A screwdriver is all that is needed. Works very well and good deal with discount coupon. Ordered online and picked up at store 15 minutes later. EASY!

          I just replaced the rear hatch (door) lift struts on my 2006 Odyssey EX-L, even though the web sight says they're not the right part. Well, they are. They fit great and do what they're supposed to do. I did have to rotate the lower end (shaft end) 90 degrees to position the end fitting to receive the ball. Only tool required was a small flat screwdriver.

            Easy process to select the lift support parts online and pick-up at my local Advance Store. Parts were perfect match for the OEM parts at half the cost. To make the installation faster have someone hold the lift gate while you install the supports. I used a pole, so it took a little longer to install. Beware, the gate is heavy without the supports!!!

                  It was a breeze to install (make sure you either prop the trunk lid with something or have a friend help). In fact, I like it better than the Honda OEM that this replaced.

                      Great question, Roger! The Strong Arm Lift Support (Part No. B6117) for the non-powered hatch on your 2008 Honda Odyssey with 3.5L V6 exerts 182 pounds of force and the Strong Arm Lift Support (Part No. B6238) for the powered hatch exerts 194 pounds of force.
