Comments about Strong Arm Lift Support:

Bought these for a 2004 Buick Century. I couldn't find any that said they were an exact fit for my car but these were listed for other years of the same vehicle so I figured they should work. They did but the only thing is they mounted upside down. The piston is at the bottom instead of the top. I don't think that matters unless a seal becomes leaky. They sure do help keep the tunk lid up now. Before installing these the lid would just plop down. This particulary car has a center license plate mounted on the lid that can chop you in the head if your lift arms are weak. They snap right on but you may need a screw driver to pop the old ones off. One end has a slightly smaller hole than the other which makes them mount only one way.

    Size was correct to fit may car, and installation took less than 10 minutes total. Now I won't accidentally get locked in the trunk when I have to crawl in to retreive something that rolled to the back!

        Comments about Strong Arm Lift Support:

        Emphasis should be placed on cautioning the installer to only replace them one at a time. When you take the second one off before installing the first, the trunk lid comes crashing down. OUCH

            Comments about Strong Arm Lift Support:

            The lift cylinder was a perfect fit on my mother-in-law's 2002 Buick Century trunk. Very easy installation. Works great. Truck lift/close effort same as OE. I do not think the "after VIN number xxx" requirement on the web site applies.

                  Used to replace blown trunk lifts in my Moms Buick Century. Replacement was very easy, just need a screwdriver or something simalar to pry up the tabs, remove old lifts, then put in the new ones. Made in the USA, so the quality is great. Cant comment on longevity as they have only been in for 2 weeks.
