Solid product.... but do your research

Comments about Strong Arm Lift Support:

The product itself is perfect, not a problem. I have had these for two months and they still lift the hatch on my 2002 Toyota Celica.

However, they require a little assistance in order to continue lifting immediately after you release handle. This is not a problem... I don't want my hatch to hit me in the chin when I release it.

The only real problem with these is the install. Looks easy enough, but it is not simple. I did some research on my vehicle and found that in order to remove the original lifts, you have to heat the ball bearing and then quickly unscrew it. This is because there is some type of lock tight formula on the screw. Once I did this, they unscrewed fairly easily. This may only be an issue on Celicas... I don't know.

Also, do not throw away the package before removing the new ball bearing screws... I almost did this. They are small and easy to miss.

    Comments about Strong Arm Lift Support:

    These are better than the OEM trunk struts on the 2000 Celica. The trunk hatch attachment has pullout tabs that hold the part onto the ball joint, instead of a permanent connection. So installation was easy and removal will be just as easy.

    The only thing I would change would be to include installation instructions in the packaging. I had to twist the head of the part to get it to align with the ball joint on the hatch, and make other minor bends for proper fit, and I wasn't sure how it was supposed to be adjusted.

    Left and right to be a little more clearly labeled when ordering. The product did yield the results I was looking for. Now I do not need to worry about the hatch hitting my wife because of worn out lift cylinders.

          A:

          Well this all depends on the skill level of whoever is removing or replacing the part. Some may have a harder time than others who have experience. However, this should not be a difficult installation and should be fairly easy.
