    A great replacement product

    A necessity for the trunk or hood. I kick myself for using a piece of wood for a hood support when this was soooo easy to replace.

    When I searched your website for "Lift Support" for my 2000 Grand Cherokee, several choices appeared. There was no difference in the description (e.g., whether it was for the "Hood" or the "Tailgate" Lift support. When I picked up the part at the store, it looked really long so I asked the Associate to double check to make sure that it was the correct one. He brought up the part number and he showed me that it was for the tailgate. I told him what happened, he logged onto the Advance Auto Website and, sure enough, there was no description for any of the supports identifying "Hood" or "Tailgate". He was very professional and swapped out the part to the correct one. So much for saving time. You should consider updating your website description to add "Hood" or "Tailgate".

    Comments about Strong Arm Lift Support:

    It's a lift strut. What more is there to say. The originals lasted 10 years. If these last for 5 years, I'll be happy. The install was a no brainer and took about 2 minutes each.

      Put these in my daughter's car. She's very happy to have her hatch no longer closing on her unexpectedly. Just hope they don't lose their charge and keep working.

        Opened up my niece's hood and was looking for the prop rod only to realize it had original, worn out supports. Once I had the hood safely propped open, replacement of the worn supports was 2 minutes tops. Once installed they worked perfectly ... easy open and close.

            The previous lift supports on my Jeep Grand Cherokee would only raise the hood to about mid-forehead level. I only needed to replace one of the two supports to get it working full range.

                    • Q:

                      Is there a special tool to take the struts off the tailgate? I was told they just "pop off", but I am not sure that is correct.

                        A:

                        With reference to your inquiry on the Strong Arm Lift Support -part# D4699, lift the tailgate and use a ladder or another object to completely support the tailgate door while you remove the lift support strut. Use your screwdriver to remove the little clip from the tailgate strut or use your socket ratchet tool to unscrew the bolts. Remove the clip with your hands or screwdriver and pull the strut from the joint. Remove the strut lift support with your hands. Pull it off the top part of the door while you hold the tailgate with your other hand. Then remove the other end of the strut from the corner of the vehicle. Pull out the little clip from the strut with your screwdriver and then remove the strut. Your lift support is now totally removed. For any further assistance, you may also call us at: 1-877-238-2623 or visit the nearest Advance Auto Parts store and one of our Parts Pros will gladly assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.
