            Rear hatch shocks

            My old ones were completely blown out and it was a pain to do any work back there. Once installing these new opr hatch struts, they have so much force I have to try and shut the hatch now!! Great product

            Work great!

            Got tired of lifting the heavy hatch and having it come down on my head. These hold it high and tight!

            Hatch Support Struts

            The install was easy, otherwise I'd give it one star. The struts are way too stiff and the hatch takes for ever to open.

            Hatch struts

            These shocks are easy to install and makes lifting the hatch much much easier to open plus the price is right no doubt.

            very strong!

            these replacements worked great for my 93 fox and made opening the hatch so much easier and they weren’t too hard to install once i figured out what to do.

            just what the doctor ordered

            Imagine that; the vice grips are gone now. Get it? Great fit. Great function. Unreal low price of $20 per pair. Go for it on these. Thank you the working class folks who actually make these struts and American Muscle supplier.

            Garbage do not buy

            Bought these is April 2016. I looked at them this past weekend in September 2017 and the paint has completely peeled off both sides and they are rusting. They look horrible. The original hatch struts lasted 25 years without any paint issues. I switched them because they weren't holding the hatch up anymore. These lasted a garbage.

            Hatch struts

            Very very strong! Love them. This was one of the first things I fixed on my newly purchased Fox. No one should have to use a broom to keep the hatch up.

            Hold up the hatch well

            They are very strong and hold up the hatch well. On the down side they lift the hatch really really slow. Takes about 11 seconds to open fully.

            Hatchback struts

            New struts hold up the hatch great. Hatch opens slowly with resistance now, but if you're patient it will open itself once you get it open more than 3 or 4 inches. Just have to be patient.
