        I bought an '01 GT convertible for my first car and the convertible top doesn't go down unless I put it down by hand. The button for the convertible does absolutely nothing when I press it and I'm wondering if this could possibly be an electrical issue or if replacing the cylinders would fix this problem. When I first got the car, the convertible top button sort of worked, but after putting it up and down a couple of times, I noticed that the problem got worse and worse until it just stopped working. Thank you 1 answer

        My top rises what, to me, seems very slow. It takes maybe 30 seconds or so. Is this actually slow? Will replacing the hydraulics speed this up at all or is this the normal speed for a convertible top to raise? 1 answer
        I was looking at the install guide to see if this looked easy enough for my husband to do at home, and first thing it says is to lower the top. Unfortunately the top is stuck up on my Mustang. Is it possible to do this repair with the top up and it will be just super inconvenient or is it absolutely vital to have the top down to get these replaced? Any insight is appreciated. Thanks! 1 answer
        Hi, one of my hydraulic lifts is leaking very badly. I was wondering if I needed to replace that one only or buy 2? 1 answer
        I bought the car used, thought filling the motor was my fix but noticed one side was sluggish. Turns out that the old cylinder piston was bent and disconnected from the top. There is no torx bolt to be found. I want to order this but am guessing it doesn't come with any bolts. Where can I source this bolt? 1 answer

            Lift Cylinder

            Ordered two of these for my 03 GT. Both work great. Fairly easy install. The top raises and lowers much faster. Both arrived very quickly and they were packaged well. I would definitely recommend ordering both at the same time. I replaced one and the other started leaking about two months later. Save yourself some time and headache and do them both at once/

            So far so good

            These seem to be pretty good units. I've used them a few times since installing them and to this point they are doing their job properly. I had to replace one because a flaring was mis-formed and the fitting wouldn't tighten. That was done without issue and customer service gets a big 5 stars for that. The fitment is excellent and they installed pretty easily.

            They work well!

            My top stopped working, thought it might be the pump, but turns out one cylinder had blown a seal. Local shopping only turned up a used one for the cost of what TWO of these, shipped, was. They fit, they work, they have a great price point. Thanks AM, for having these in your catalog!

            they work

            not much to say... If you have blown pistons or are doing a restoration these will work nicely. Just make sure to bleed your system of air after install and use some plumbers tape on the threads.

            Great product

            Pretty easy to install. Will need someone to hold the top up for you so you can align the cylinder correctly and bolt it. Once installed, make sure you manually lift the top, fill the hydraulic pump, manually lower top and fill again. Repeat until the pump is topped off and you’re ready to go.
