Hey

I hope this is in the right place. Here are two videos one is the standard Honda struts. It shows that i have to push the boot from closed all the way to open as the struts wont do it themselfs.

The second video is with the new struts from strutsdirect £19 each. This shows that once i open the boot slightly the struts are then able to lift the boot fully on their own.

Im hoping to finalize a product number for these to make it easier for people to order if they wish.

For me it was either these or wind deflectors i think my forehead thanks me for choosing these after whacking it on the boot so many times.

Standard

Sorry for the really rubbish videos but i hope it shows the massive difference between the two.

I'm interest in this, had mine replaced under warranty and still naff.

Would you need 2 struts, or would one be OK?

I'll be in for a group buy.

A quick question, have you got a spoiler? I think the struts will need to accommodate the extra weight for people with spoilers.

Have you also measured the closing force for both struts?
