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.

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.

I would have given it 5-stars, but the packaging contained absolutly NO INSTRUCTIONS for installation... it did have a little 'calling card' enclosed wtih a web site to go to for instructions, and I had already read (here on-line) the instructions. Still, some small printed clues might be nice for someone not as handy as I. They are exact fit replacements. They immediately held-up the hood, as expected and designed they should. It is VERY easy to kind of insert a small-blade screwdriver in the clip's slot, pry the clip up A LITTLE, be careful NOT to snap the clip all the way out. You can certainly put it back on the lift support, ummm, that is IF it didn't snap and go flying somewhere in the engine compartment where you can't find it! Just be sure after you pop the new part over the 'ball' joint, that you push the clip back into the correct position. Very competitive price over what the dealer parts desk quoted (I didn't even ASK how much they would charge to install, no way!), and cheaper than a national parts chain store I inquired in. Let's see how long they hold their charge/air/chamber... the OEM ones only lasted 7 years - I would ahve expected more considering these are usually in the 'closed' position when the hood is down/driving. Time will tell how well they hold up. I think, although I didn't see it mentioned anywhere, you probably should replace BOTH at the same time. ONE new one 'might' seem to hold the hood up, but the stress on that one, might let go at any time your head is under the hood, and BAM, that's gonna leave a mark!

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.
