Gas charged lift supports are energy storage devices that create energy by compressing gas inside a cylinder. When closed, the energy is stored. When opened the energy is released to raise a hatch, hood, liftgate or trunk, holding them safely in an open position. Gas charged lift supports are sometimes incorrectly thought of as shock absorbers or struts, which instead absorb energy to control motion. Lift supports normally store a gas charge of 1,500 psi, therefore, they cannot typically be compressed by hand.
When it comes to finding replacement lift support hardware, Autoforever is committed to bringing you the satisfaction and relief of finding the parts you need. Whether it’s for your auto or non-automotive lift support needs, we bring it to you at a high quality and reasonable cost.

To replace lift supports, you may need various tools:
Step 1 Support the Application
When replacing lift supports, you need to use the right safety stand whenever the installation procedure requires
you to work under the support or vehicle. For your own safety, it’s better to have someone hold the hood, trunk,
or other lift support application open for you so that they can raise it and lower it as needed.
Step 2 Inspect the End Connections
Before you replace lift supports, inspect the end connections of your new gas struts on both ends and compare
them to the existing units on your vehicle to be sure they’re the same. The overall length of the gas struts, when
fully extended, should also be the same.
Step 3 Remove the Old Supports
Use a flathead screwdriver to pry off the U-shaped retaining clip or band that holds the ball socket lift support
into place. Do this slowly and pull it away from the vehicle until it releases. Avoid pulling off the U-band all the
way or using force, as it will fly off and could hurt you or someone nearby. Doing it correctly will ensure you
replace your lift supports with ease.
Step 4 Install the Replacement Lift Supports
To install the new lift supports, start with the shaft end first. Place the ball socket over the ball stud on your
vehicle and use your fingers to apply some gentle pressure until it pops into place. Grab the body of the gas strut
(the thick steel cylinder) and turn it one full turn clockwise to release the lift support cylinder.
Turn the gas strut until the ball socket is right on top of the ball stud. Push it gently onto the ball stud. After you’ve
installed both ends of the gas strut, tug it gently to be sure that it is securely attached to the vehicle. No
complicated tools are needed when you want to replace lift supports. Repeat this procedure to remove and
replace the other gas strut.
