        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.
