    Comments about Strong Arm Lift Support:

    This product was far better than the original equipment on the vehicle. It is much stiffer and lifts and holds the hood securely. It is extremely easy to intall (after looking at a demonstration on YouTube)and took less than 10 minutes to complete the job.

      Easy install with screwdriver, (Check Youtube), lifetime warranty, $10 off coupon on each one, took less time than changing oil. If you can screw in a light bulb you can do this swap out (well almost that easy).

      Comments about Strong Arm Lift Support:

      installed easy with a flat screwdriver. Make sure someone is holding up the hood or use a prop. These are definitely tighter feeling than the stock ones and a bit beefier. Can't be any happier with the hood up and not worrying about getting your head chopped off. Last time I left a screwdriver on the engine and the hood came down and made a noticeable bump on the hood. Acura/Honda parts are not like the old Honda only parts. They should've used thicker lift supports to start with. These are my 3rd set.

        Comments about Strong Arm Lift Support:

        Easy install once I figured out I just had to slip a screwdriver under the clips on the old one to release from the mounting ball. After that, it only took about a minute for each one to be installed! EASY install. I just used a 3 foot 2X4 to hold the hood up while I changed them. Simple. Product looks solid and has good lifting power. I see why another review thought it was a bit too strong, but I think it will be just fine.

        Price was $45 less than my dealer wanted.

        Comments about Strong Arm Lift Support:

        Excellent price/value and easy to install. However, over speced, too strong for make/model. Installed two E4160 to replace OEM on 2003 Acura TL. Hood opens too agressively and retains too much lift when closing that results in not latching on first drop and requires you to release safty latch and manually assist in closing hood. Hopefully this will deminsh over time.
