    Comments about Strong Arm Lift Support:

    These lifts last about seven years. I have just installed the third pair the hood and the rear lift-gate on my 14 year-old SUV. They are a quality product and easy to install (in most cases).I would recommend them.

    It does make you wonder what is the wear-out mechanism. They appear to be like new after seven years, but will no longer hold up the hood or door they support.

      My originals went bad a year or two ago. Wish I had bought these earlier. Now I can use the back glass, instead of having to lift the entire back hatch.

                      Happy to help you with your question Mark! We currently do no ship to other counties. What some customers do; they have secondary shippers that usually ship out of Florida, the parts are shipped to Florida then sent to where the customer is located. Along with a credit card with an American address for the parts to be paid for. These lift supports are sold individually.

                      A:

                      Instructions to install the lift support: 1. 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. 2. 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. 3. Reattach the new tailgate strut. Push the clips back into the strut and then push the strut back onto the little joints. Place the object that is holding the tailgate up on the other side and work on the other side of the tailgate the same way. For any further assistance, please feel free to 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.
