        Comments about Strong Arm Lift Support:

        Picked up 1/2 after ordering and installed in even less time. Great performance as the rear hatch now goes up by itself and no longer konks me on the head in cold weather.
        Furthermore, the lifts are just the right strength so my wife can close the hatch without any strain.

            Worked great. Tailgate door opens and shuts like it did when vehicle was new. Handed my wife the tools needed so she could drive up and installed it on her mothers 06 T/C van. She had it done in 20 minutes so very easy to install. Was going to deduct a star for being a little pricey, but fiqured it would have cost alot more if purchsed at the dealer.

                Comments about Strong Arm Lift Support:

                Replaced the 6 yr old lift struts on the back gate of my '05 Grand Caravan. Did not realize how bad the old ones were till I replaced them. The old ones were creaking and would barely lift the gate with assistance.
                Install was pretty simple, but having a second person to help makes it easier. when one is removed the gate drops and you need to hold it up to install it. I did it in the parking lot of the parts store. I needed a special star bit to do it but other than that no issue.
                Would buy these again no problem. Still working well when we sold the vehicle 3 years after install.

                        I forgot how the liftgate worked years ago! Went from it falling on me (with the worn out lifters), to popping up on its own (almost caught me on the chin!) BIG IMPROVEMENT!
