Two powerful gas struts will now make lifting your bonnet a thing of ease! The initial lifting force is substantially reduced, and after opening only a portion, the springs take over completely and raise your bonnet fully open.
Lowering the bonnet is so much better, too! The weight does not build and build like before, but instead you "pull" the bonnet down and then lower it for only the last portion while the springs help counterbalance the weight!
This cleverly engineered design requires no drilling. Custom fabricated brackets and ball studs fasten to existing geometry. Gas struts have even been custom made for just this application."
