I'm not sure exactly what they are called but Ive added weight to my rear hatch and now it's not lifting properly lol. Has anyone put larger struts or know where to get them??

I find plenty of info for the Gen 2 but very little for the Gen 1. You can go to McMaster Carr and search for "Gas Springs" and just find one that is in the weight range you are looking for in the correct open/closed length and with the correct attachment type.

As for the correct weight range....got me.

I measured the extended (24 3/4") and the contracted (14") but I'm not sure what weight is required... Does anyone have any info on this for first gens? Could I use a second gen spring?
