      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 year...total 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.

      These are great

      Well worth the money to replace my old set that fell if the temperature wasn't above 70. However it is still a little difficult to open my hatch in cold weather.
