    2 points:
    1:I accessed this part off your website which stated it was in stock at my local store # 6860. Just to be safe, I called store & was advised it was NOT in stock, but would be ordered from outside and be in that afternoon.I was to be called when in, but never got a call. Some Days later, I was finally able to pick it up even though it was in that same day.
    2:Original lift(left side) to be replaced has an attached bracket which supports a portion of wiring harness lying near lift, to keep it from flopping around under the hood. Your replacement part was missing this. I had to fashion my own version.So your supplier did not supply an exact replacement part.
    With this in mind, I'm not sure I have confidence to do business with Advance in the future.

    Comments about Strong Arm Lift Support:

    The hood lift was for a 1996 Camry.

    I am very pleased how it was constructed and the ease of installation. It took less than 15-mins to replace both (I had with me all the right tools). When the hood is 2/3 open I can let go and it will spring up to its full position. The construction looks like it will last. The compressed gas retention is dependent on the seal quality. Something only the test of time will assess.

    Note: On the left side (drivers side) the original equipment had a hardness clip. The replacement does not. Your options are: do nothing, pry off and use the old clip, or use a plastic tie to secure the hardness.

    Tools needed: I used a 14mm box end wrench (ratchet type), a small screw driver, pliers, a plastic tie (optional), and second person to hold up the hood.

    1) Have with you the replacement lift and all the tools. Then have someone hold up the hood or otherwise wedge something to hold it up.

    2) Using the 14 mm wrench remove the one bolt attaching the bottom of the lift. On the left lift remove the harness from its bracket. Note: on the right side there is not enough room for a socket and ratchet and you will need a wrench.

    3) on the top: pry slightly the flat metal spring surrounding the lift's socket. Pull sightly and the lift should pop off onto your hands.

    4) attach the replacement lift to the bottom using the 14 mm bolt.

    NOTE: For my installation I used the original equipment lift ball as it showed no wear and was the same size of the replacement part. A replacement ball is supplied. If the part is to be replaced it easy. Only one nut and it is easy to get at.

    5) Using the pliers hold the lift's socket bracket and rotate it so that the socket hole is aligned to its mating ball. Caution: don't use the pliers on the lift's sliding bar as it may be damaged causing a premature seal failure.

    6) With small screw driver slightly pry up the metal flat clip on the lift's socket, push the replacement lift onto the mating ball, and release the clip. Note: Make sure that as you pry metal clip up that the hole it creates on the other side is aligned with the lift's socket cavity. If not you may have to play with it a little.

    7) attached the plastic tie to the harness and a secure point.

    No defroster hook like the one being replaced. Had to chisel the old part to create hook for defroster wiring.
