Trunk strut replacement from Autozone
Written by klockvanditch on 3/12/2011 at 12:43 pm

They no longer ship overseas.
But if you can order me one 9416K344 and two 9416K84 from this website-I'll be
very grateful :)

notice the slight difference in opening and the strut is easier to get on
becaupe the trunk open far enough to just slide the pins in where as the stock
strut is longer and tries to open further but the trunk travel stops it. You
have to try to compress the shock to get the pins in while holding the trunk all
the way open. Much harder.

Trunk strut replacement from Autozone
Replaced my leaking trunk strut with Mighty Lift part #95957 from Autozone for $18.99. Length is exact. Might be a little strong but seemed to 'loosen up' now that I've opened and closed the trunk a few times.
