Product Description

StrongArm gas charged lift supports are custom engineered and manufactured beyond industry standards to provide smooth operation and durability. The hardened chromium plated steel shaft is precision ground and polished for superior corrosion resistance and leak free sealing. The self cleaning piston assembly automatically opens during each compression cycle to keep the orifice clear of fluid contaminants and provide smoother operation and reliable performance. Most units also utilize StrongArm's patented temperature compensation module valve which ensures consistent operation even in extreme weather conditions. It does so by compensating for normal gas pressure changes caused by temperature variations. The metallic upper bushing is manufactured with bearing quality precision to provide exact fit with pistion rod and promote a long operating life.

Do you have a sloted screw driver and a 3 foot non-metallic (read: wood) stick? Then you will have no problem installing these. Forget the sockets, wrenches, torx and inverted torx drivers the Chrysler loves to use.

Prop up the hood in the middle with the non-metallic stick (just to be sure you don't arc the battery terminals). Pop out one metal retaining ring on each end of the strut with a slotted screw driver and pull the old supports out. Take note which side the rod protrudes from the housing. The retaining rings on the new struts are already in place and don't need to be removed. Just align the hole on the strut to the peg on the hood and pop them in. Then give them a little tug to make sure they hold. You won't be disappointed with the quality either. They hold firm and operate well.

One word of warning: Make sure you keep the stick propping up the hood in place while you do the second strut. Thought the first one may seem like it is holding up the hood by itself, it doesn't take much for that hood to drop on the back of your head. Yes, I'll be feeling that one for a while.

Removal of old hood struts and installation of Strong Arm struts took less than five minutes with only a screw driver. Strong Arm struts were
an exact match for the originals.

I got this for my 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, and it fit perfect. You only need a screwdriver to pry out a small clip. My hood only wouldn't hold up in cold weather, so I only replaced one strut, and that was plenty.

I just bought a complete set of strongarm lift supports for the liftgate, rear glass, and hood for my 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. It works perfectly. They were very easy to install. I read the reviews and made sure I had a buddy help me hold things up, but it was so easy I think I probably could have done it by myself with a prop (although I wouldn't recommend it... safety first!).

The liftgate is the most difficult of the three to install, but the only difficulty is making sure you have the right torque bit (T-40?) for your ratchet (I borrowed it from a neighbor). Once you have that, it's as easy as removing two bolts and bolting the new lift supports in. I was worried about the supports being under pressure so I cautiously approached putting them in, but it turned out to be absolutely no worry at all. When the liftgate is open, the supports are in it's rest position so you don't need to pull or push on the supports at all. About the only thing you need to do is rotate the support arm 1/4 turn so you can bolt it in right. Also make sure you bolt the support in exactly the same way as the original (canister side up).

The other supports are easier to put in. The rear glass has only one bolt per support. I used a T24 bit which was a little small, but it was all I had and it worked good enough. I did this set on my own with a stick to prop to glass. The hood supports were even easier. No bolts required! You'll need a friend to hold up the hood, but just pop out the thin metal housing, wiggle off the supports and reverse the process for the new supports (took maybe 3 minutes to do both).

I am so thrilled to have these new supports in.

Just like everyone else said on here before, all you need is a screwdriver (Phillips head or regular) to pry off the old clips and the new ones simply pop right on. Took probably 2 minutes total, it took me longer to get them out of the package than to install them to be quite honest. The only issue was with the holes not lining up but once you pop one into place, you can just simply rotate them by hand until the hole matches up and give it a bump with the palm of your hand and it clips right in to place. Super easy to do and well worth the price. Local auto parts store wanted $65 a piece so when I got both for $45 I jumped on it.

FYI: This fit my 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited just fine.

Wow, flat head screwdriver to pop off the retainer clips, pulled the old supports off, popped the new ones on. First one was on in a couple minutes, second one even faster once I knew what I was doing. The hood now actually pops up rather than straining to stay open. Wish I'd bought these a year ago before I conked my head with the hood when checking the oil! Reminder - prop the hood up with a wood stick before beginning work on installing the new supports, once installed, throw away the stick (or give them a friend who hasn't replaced theirs yet.

This replacement is a no-brainer. The supports went in really easily. The hardest part was figuring out how to release the latches that attaches the support to the hood and chassis. After a minute fiddling with a screwdriver I figured it out then it took only minutes to replace both supports.

You will need a stick (or another person) to hold the hood open while replacing the supports, which in my case was no problem as I had been carrying a stick around for whenever I needed to hold the hood open anyway.

A quick and painless install. 5 minutes tops for anyone who has a brain and a flathead screwdriver. Are you kidding me that most dealers will charge over $100 for two of these installed !! Another reason we are fed up with the car companies. Save your time and money. Learn to do it yourself !!
