          Comments about Strong Arm Lift Support:

          It was so easy. Just used the tip of needle nose pliers to pops the old one out of the ball joint. Then lined up the ball with the new one and pushed in. Did that for the top and bottom of both and it was done. No bolts, needed. Works perfect.
          When the hood is a little before the halfway point, if just open up all the way on it's own. AWESOME!

          Works and installs fine. I have specified Strongarm on aftermarket and know the brand fairly well. To anyone with a winter use vehicle, check your struts for slipping in cold weather if older than 5 years old. They can become a hazard.

              The instructions were iffy because the product can be used on multiple vehicles but once I figured it out it was easy to install. Works great...but a part like this you don't really know until it has been used over time.

              Hey,after getting hit in the head by the hood a couple of times and being a slow learner I finally made up my mind to replace the worn out ones on my Explorer,easy on and off.
              The hood goes up easy and shuts smoothly.No longer worried if it's coming down to break my arm when checking the oil or lumps to my noggin.
              Replaced window and hood works great and lifetime makes this well worth the investment.

                  Wish I had done this replacement sooner. Hood fell and busted two work lights before, due to worn gas lifts.

                    Quick easy on line order. Parts picked up in local store a few short minutes later. Staff helped install and replaced old worn out supports. Works fine- beats the old way of using a windshield scraper to hold the hood open! Much safer and very easy to replace- better than risk getting injured ! :0)
