Hood lift support...replacement not working
 
hey guys..purchased this off amazon to replace my hoodlift support arm -

http://www.amazon.com/StrongArm-6304...1&s=automotive

Here's a pic of the lift installed, to show that I don't have the wrong part number. Problem is it's just collapsing back down as if it's broken too. As a disclaimer, I purchased my jeep used and the old one had never been working either..is there something else I should be looking into? I thought these were rather fool proof

looks right!


One question...has your hood ever been replaced? Reason I ask is it couldve been replaced with a steel hood...which is really heavy compared to the oem aluminum one.

nope not that I'm aware of...i'll definitely double check with the first owner. I guess I'll just reorder the part, seems like the only solution. Glad I wasn't missing something. Thanks for the suggestion

return that to amazon and buy the OEM one from a dealer.

My OEM one got replaced by the dealer when I bought it. That being said, I bought the StrongArm brand for my rear liftgate replacements and i've never used any liftgate pistons that are that strong! I have to put forth a good amount of effort to shut my liftgate! I'll be replacing my pistons with that brand from now on! Also, ordered via amazon on the CHEAP!
