Hatch strut lift

Recommended Posts

Thank you Gents, that looks like the ticket so I just ordered it. This is the same company I ordered my gas lifts for the hood and they work perfectly. I'll do a write up on when they arrive.

@Mike, looks like your odometer is about to roll over!

Now that there is a layer of snow on the ground I just got around to installing the new gas lift, this is the one I bought, https://www.liftsupportsdepot.com/strong-arm-4313-gas-charged-nissan-hatchback-lift-support-strut-10029w/

The whole job didn't take 20 min. Remove the stock lift, punch out the pin holding the upper rod to the mounting flange, attach the ball studs and snap in the new lift. It has nice action and has a great feature, when the lift is about 2" from being fully extended the motion slows right down so there is no sudden stop when fully open. Remember to mount it with the rod attached to the car and the black receiver end on the hatch, it keeps oil on the seal and the rod.
