Lift Gate shocks

OK, here's my dumb question of the day. I'd like to buy new lift gate shocks. I slammed in to the corner of mine and have a huge Fred Flintstone lump/gash on my head. Does anyone have a link or suggestion on where to buy them. I searched on JFJ and ebay with no luck.

Re: Lift Gate shocks

Glad to help; I just ordered a set as well; great prices and they are higher quality struts than the crappy OEM ones that go bad after just a couple years.

Re: Lift Gate shocks

Mine are terrible. Once it gets cold out, the shocks never hold, the door just shuts...I hate it so much

Re: Lift Gate shocks

I get all my struts from http://www.strutwise.com/index.php. Frank Irvine will build them the way you want, including pressures, and will even do them in stainless/chrome, if you choose. Great guy...great struts.
