Tailgate lift supports

Post by Threesevens » Wed Jun 15, 2016 6:09 pm

I have been looking round for replacement tailgate supports as the current ones are a bit temperamental. I am not sure if they can be repaired and i gather it is a fairly common for these to fail. I have seen these on Ebay:

I have asked the sellers if they are able to do reduce postage if i order more than one.
Is anyone else interested?

I actually just installed these (last weekend) on my RX7.

They work great and seem to be of good quality, install was a breeze.

I got them cheap as I live by the US border, but if you have no other options I recommend them.

They are also available on Amazon.com - the shipping may be cheaper there.

Thanks for your replies. When I get my car back I will see if I can get them refurbed at the place suggested by Ian.
Otherwise I will try those on Ebay
