Direct Replacement?

Replacing worn out hood shocks, and directions are very poor. Needless to say, the old ones are back on and still propping the hood with a 2x4.

              I used a 12 mm wrench to remove old strut mounting hardware and used a 7/16 wrench to install the Strongarm mounting hardware. Only issue is be sure to secure hardware before installing struts. Because after struts are installed using the mounting hardware, the connection cannot be tightened or loostened with 7/16 standard wrench without removing the strut via the clip. New struts were installed within 20 minutes or less. Easy job and highly recommended. I cannot give 5 stars until I have used them on the vehicle for an extended period.

                  Comments about Strong Arm Lift Support:

                  I am not an auto mechanic, but have worked on heavy rail vehicles for years. These supports are stronger than the Nissan Maxima originals. Very easy to install even though the instructions are kind of vague for the inexperienced. I would suggest an instruction sheet explaining how to align the pivoting attachments. (I just attached the top and then aligned the bottom by turning it clockwise until it lined up)

                      It's best to use the mounting pivot points that are included in the package.
