* Required Fields



Good quality after market tailgate strut.

800nm pressure, so the strongest that were fitted from the factory.

You may see these incorrectly described as "uprated", that's not technically correct.

They will however lift a tailgate with a bike rack attached, and maybe a bike or 2 with a little assistance.

Brand varies, We buy at the best price to offer you the best price.

Priced separately, but only sold in pairs.

We always recommend replacing in pairs so as the force on the tailgate is even on both sides.

Really powerfull!
These are great. They easily handle holding up the boot lid even with a bike rack. very easy to fit. Highly recommended. Review by Nik / (Posted on 03/06/2015)
Strong. You will wonder how you managed with your old ones.
Just fitted a pair of these to my T3 which has the panel van tailgate with no glass or fittings.

Even though it is light one of the old struts was struggling and the tailgate took some time to raise.

I was pleasantly surprised how strong the replacements were and would recommend them (even for people attaching heavy cycle racks/ladders etc to the tailgate). Review by Paul / (Posted on 03/07/2013)
