Gas Strut needed for boot lid

Post by honeybee#234 » Wed 11 Feb, 2015 17:39

Hi all

I need a second gas strut for my boot lid (I bought the other one last year). They seem to vary hugely in price online. Anyone recommend a cheap supplier?

These are the ones I bought also, such an improvement over the tired originals.

Chaps how have these £20 a pair Magneti struts been doing? I need to order a pair of struts myself and they look a real deal.

Useful post guys. I've been thinking about replacing the tailgate struts on mine too. As you all seem happy with these replacements, I have put an order in as well. Cheers KF :thumb:
