Im assuming yours don't hold up anymore correct?

alittle trick I have learned push in on the struts to bend them alittle. They will work like new. :)
A few other members have done this as well and works great.

I.E.> Push the strut inwards towards the car, Hold it in the middle of the strut. It takes alittle force.

Sure toyota sells mk4s for $370 :) yeah would replace mine, but might go carbon down the line so don't want to risk of releasing the nitrogen, and buying another set.
So your saying you have carbon struts? Or carbon fiber struts?

Nah. I have scratches, and paint chips here, and there. So down I might change to carbon parts before I get the car painted; though I have seen some yellowing on g35 who parks his car in the sun a lot at work, and warping on a supra on ebay so undecided.

I know you can get hood struts in carbon, but can you for the rear? Sorry I just quickly typed, and logged off lol.....

Lol it's cool, I was just kinda interested where you would have gotten CF Struts for your hatch, thanks for correcting

Now on bending the struts, how much are y'all bending them? The inner part of the strut dosnt scratch on the side of the outer caseimgs inner wall?
