We recommend you to choose two gas springs: one on each side of the lid or hatch.

Our American customers are very satisfied with our quality struts. “My father (retired electrician) is my go-to mechanical consultant. He’s had mixed results with ‘budget’ gas struts and helped me with the install”, says Jeremy Schulz from Belvidere in a review. “After seeing the first close/open after the installation, he turned to me and said, “I need you to send me a link to this company.” High praise.”

Do you need a replacement? In our shop you can find many new gas springs to replace your current struts on your pickup truck. Please contact us if you have questions or if you can’t find your replacement.

Why do we love pickup trucks in the US?

Pickup trucks are as American as Apple Pie and baseball. Americans love them, because these vehicles are versatile. Other reasons are durability, longevity and utility. They are also a status symbol, especially in rural areas where people want to ride a truck instead of a BMW or Mercedes. Also: a pickup truck isn’t expensive in the US. You can already buy a new pickup truck for $ 20,000 to $ 40,000. In Europe, you pay at least double for a high-quality pickup truck.
