oh well, thanks for clearing that up.

I'm asking cuz I was trying to buy some shocks for the trunk, and they're listed as "with wing" or "without wing", and the shocks I have currently only work when my car is wingless, are they really any different or is it just toyota making it easier to find for buyers?

The shocks for wings has more pressure to hold up the extra wight of the wing.

if your wingless, get the shocks for the wingless hatch but if you get shocks for a wing'd hatch then it will just be super strong.

Wow, i didnt know that, so I guess my supra was factory wingless. I will check the shocks in the morning to see if theres any sticker that specifies if its a with or w/o .

Either that or they have just gotten weaker over time.

Will be sending mine to a canadian rebuilder, just had a quote they will also get them a bit stronger but will be harder to close the hatch, I don't care, it will open faster and last longer ! They are called strutwise

For me Strutwise asked: $46 each strut, shipping back also included and I asked to have them 1 notch stronger for both my vehicles (93 Supra Turbo, spoiler, wiper and 91 Previa LE AWD, spoiler, wiper)

He advised a notch stronger will be fine, but it may be a bit more difficult to close the hatch, but if it open more easily and last longer too !

I'll send them in a few month, I'm in Canada, so should not take long maybe a week, I'll ask him before sending not to loose the Supra hatch for too long
