Tailgate lift struts

Recommended Posts

Was getting a bit heavy to lift the boot lid and it wasn't staying up. Took a chance on some ebay struts from china, they came within a week and fitted perfectly for around £12 !!
Lets see how long they last 🙂

That's ridiculously cheap!  It seems to be pot luck with cheap Chinese parts, they may well be fine, no reason to think they wouldn't be. I don't mind risking it if its not a part I rely on for safety.

Worth a try for £12. I've read mixed reports for UK strut suppliers.
