    great replacement but way overpriced. Should not cost the same as a suspension shock that does more work and is 10 times larger.

      Comments about Strong Arm Lift Support:

      My wife was taking our 3-year-old tasmanian devil swimming one day, and the lift gate on our Pontiac Torrent fell down on her. She had to hold the lift gate up with one hand, grab our son from running off into traffic with the other hand, and try to remove the swimming bag out of the back of the car with one foot. She had called the dealership, where we normally have the car serviced, for a quote on having the lift gate supports replaced. Thankfully, she waited until I got home to ask if she should schedule an appointment or if I could find the time to replace the supports. I did some searching online and compared some prices. I found some other stores that would ship the parts to my house, but that it would take a few days for them to show up. I checked with Advance Auto online and found that I could purchase what I needed and pick them up the next day at the store that is only a few miles from my house. So convenient. Now my wife does not need to turn herself into a pretzel or an octopus.

                I was tired of the hatch on my wife's 07 Equinox falling down so I ordered these. They work perfectly and were very easy to install. They just pop on and off. The only tool I needed was a flat screwdriver. Installation only took about 5 minutes for both sides.

                They are a little costly for the pair but look around online and find a coupon. I was able to save $30 by doing so.

                    Product was very easy to install, once I was able to defeat gravity and keep the liftgate up....product performs as well as or better than the originals when they were new.

                    Overall a great replacement part that is considerably cheaper than the dealers' comparable part. I have only had these lifts installed on the back hatch of my SUV for about a week now. My only complaint is that they work too well -- the hatch flies up and extends higher than it ever did before. Maybe the power in these lifts will die down a little after they have been used for a while.

                    • Q:

                      Is this only for the rear lift gate or the hood as well? Under the product description it indicates the hood, although all other references are to the lift gate.
