Comments about Strong Arm Lift Support:

This part was an exact replacement for a Chrysler 2004 300M. Very easy install - Need to slowly close the hood the first time since the cylinder rod sticks and wouldn't move initially - lightly move the hood up and down until the rod releases - once unstuck, it works like a charm.

    Comments about Strong Arm Lift Support:

    I had bought these from another supplier & returned them due to incompatable end rods. I bought from Advance due to being advertised as "exact" replacements. Again, incompatable end rods. The end rods are removable & exchange easily with the original equipment. As long as the upper end rods on the originals are not too worn, these will work just fine.

          Easy install. Simple instructions. I went from worrying about the hood falling on my head to actually having to force the hood downward to get it to close. Great improvement in upward holding force and thus safety.

            Comments about Strong Arm Lift Support:

            Product listed as a perfect fit is incorrect. The connecting heads needs to be manupliated in order to fit the vehicle intended. Defeats the purpose of having a new lift support if the head have to be swapped out with the old..

              Comments about Strong Arm Lift Support:

              Its a common problem for hood supports to wear out over time. Mine were bad enough that the hood wouldn't stay open during the cold months unless I propped it. Installs easily in under 10 minutes on a Chrysler 300M. I can really feel the difference.
