    Easy install!

    I can't believe the last owner didn't take care of this. It was so easy to install, and cheap! Just amazed at how people neglect their cars. Luckily for this car i own it now and have been on AmericanMuscle quite a bit! Love the website and the prices! I definitely recommend this product. Lifts and holds hatch up with no problems at all!

    So far, so good!

    I've been propping my hatchback up using a stick for years (20 years) and finally bought a pair of hatch support struts. They installed in minutes. You lift the hatch the first 6", then it raises itself the rest of the way with the last couple inches being nice and slow! I'm in Ontario Canada and they arrived in a matter of days. For the price of $30 I wish I had of bought these 20 years ago lol

    Awesome product for price

    When I recently bought my 91 GT I thought they had screwed the hatch down with how heavy it was. Went to local auto parts store to get lifts and the price floored me. These were less than half the cost of one locally and are very strong and seem well made. Great purchase!

    Hatch Ready!!!

    The hatch support struts that I purchased have made a difference in the way I don't have to hold the hatch open with one hand while trying to load things in my vehicle or unload items from my vehicle. The struts hold up the heavy hatch with no problem and I don't have to worry about it coming down on me. Very satisfied with the product and the strength it has to hold up a heavy hatch.

    Easy install work great!

    My old struts were worn out to the point they could not support the hatch at all. These new struts are awesome and heavy duty enough to support the weight of the hatch (and lift it up themselves). Would definitely recommend these to anyone who's old hatch struts are worn out.

    OK, but not great

    This is maybe the 5th or 6th sets of these supports that I've purchased, for two different Mustangs. I know how they are supposed to work. These ones that I just got are like half dead already. The way that they are supposed to work, is you lift the hatch about 6 inches, and then it goes up on its own. With these struts, I have to lift the hatch up about 2/3's of the height, and the hatch resists me during that lifting, then the hatch lifts on its own. Either these struts are weaker than the OEM struts, or they've been sitting on the shelf for years, and they are half dead already. Better than nothing, not nearly as good as struts I've gotten before.

    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.
