hatch droop
« on: May 25, 2016, 03:36:00 PM »
The old girl's hatch is drooping - probably from the extra weight.  She's not even that old :( but she's still sagging.  So I want to perk her up a bit - I googled for strong struts, and came across this: http://www.amazon.com/StrongArm-Nissan-Liftgate-Tailgate-Supports/dp/B007MVAVAY?ie=UTF8&psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=ox_sc_sfl_title_1&smid=AZUEGS6F7RLJ5

Would these work?  Are there better out there>  If so, name/link?

Thanks in advance.

XZilla beat me to the theNewX link.

I read through that thread and decided to go with the 175 lbs replacements from McMaster for my 2013. They are stout and will raise the hatch up higher that stock.

Thanks for the info.  I liked seeing the hatch lift pics and really appreciated the links.  Never thought about the dust boots.

These new lifts push the hatch out so fast, they almost smack me in the jaw as it opens.  Thanks for the tip pointing to McMaster.
