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.

I was amazed at the price for these lifts. They were on sale plus an extra $5 off for two, plus free shipping. I couldn't touch that price at any of the local auto parts stores for poorly made lifts.

They were very easy to install and have been working perfectly in subfreezing temperatures for over a month. The OEM lifts lasted for about 8 years and failed to hold the gate up when it was cold. I should have replaced them a couple of years ago but could not bring myself to spend the $ for a good set of lifts. These lift supports are worth it so far and if they don't work out, they were still worth a try for the price!

*Update 10/26/10*
Its been about 9 months and these lifts are still working like the day I installed them. Not disappointed!

We went through three sets of struts from another manufacturer and each set bent at the joint where it joins to the gate (body side connection was fine) within a week.

These use a substantially stronger mount for the gate side connection and work SO well. I had them installed in about five minutes and we've been VERY pleased with them. The jeep made it 13 years without needing new ones so I may not buy again but if I needed to, I would :D

This is a great replacement for my wife's Jeep Cherokee. Took 15 mins to change out with my wife holding up the tailgate. I let her snap on the bottom connection - made here feel like a hero knowing that the tailgate would not come crashing down on her / my head anymore.

The product is excellent, but I used the selection tool for make/model/etc and got the wrong item. I have a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the correct part was for models between 1993/1998. Make sure to check the length of the OEM equipment and order the part making sure the length is correct. It would have saved me a lot of time.

I reorder the correct parts with amazon customer service help and they installed and worked perfectly.

These liftgate supports for our 1998 Jeep Cherokee are far superior to what we were able to find in our local car parts stores. We had actually purchased two replacement supports at one of these stores recently because one of the lift supports had broken and it seemed wise to replace both sides at the same time. Both supports failed in less than two months -- almost causing a severe accident as the liftgate is very heavy and when the supports failed I was almost thrown under the liftgate when I tried to "catch" it and hold it up by myself.

These units I purchased through Amazon - StrongArm - were much better quality and installation was done in less than 15 minutes. It really does take two people to install; one to install the new support and one to gently lower/raise the liftgate for the support to slide into the receptacle. Ordering was easy with the on-screen input for my particular car/model. Excellent quality.

After going way too long with my tailgate dropping down and banging my head every time I stood underneath it I finally got around to replacing the shocks.

These supports are half the price of comparable parts sold in my local auto store. They look identical to the factory parts I replaced. It's a little confusing that they didn't come with any product information card, warranty info, or printed instructions, though I did find instructions in a PDF here at Amazon. Installation took 15 minutes for both struts and required only a 10mm driver and a flat head screwdriver.

What an improvement! The gate rises gently after it's opened more than 6". It's a tad stiff to pull down to close, but I'll take that over being bopped in the head.

I just installed these arms in my 99 Jeep Cherokee, and they work great. They push the rear door up very well, and they have the appropriate pressure when you try to close the door. They perform exactly as they supposed to. They are also very easy to install.

If you're like me, installation wasn't all that readily apparent, but it's very easy once you figure it out.

The struts are held in on the bottom by metal clips - pop 'em out with a flathead, then unscrew the top bolts.

The new struts will just pop on the bottom, they come with metal clips already on.

The top part will rotate, so just shimmy it until it lines up with the bolts. These lifts are very strong (you will not be able to make them budge yourself) and it really helps to have someone else hold up the door nice and high to give you plenty of room.

I've just now installed them to replace my old failing OEM ones - they feel very strong and based on the other reviews here it looks like they won't be getting weaker anytime soon.
