Cold weather is often when tired lift supports first begin to show they are losing pressure and failing. A hood or heavy glass hatch might refuse to stay open or dangerously close without warning.
There is no need to struggle for months with bad lift supports. On most vehicles, replacing the lift supports is not difficult. In minutes, the hood, trunk or hatchback can be operating smoothly and consistently once again.

New lift supports do not have to be costly either. RockAuto offers lift supports by manufacturers such as AMS, Monroe, Sachs and Strongarm. For many vehicles, Ultrapower lift supports are an exceptional value thanks to factory-direct pricing.
Why risk bodily harm propping up the hatch with a broom handle when new lift supports might cost less than the broom? Find new lift supports for your specific vehicle under "Body-Exterior" in the RockAuto catalog.
