Yeah I have dealt with this strut crap for years and the only strut that has worked perfect for me and with the correct pressure so far are the ones I got from Pantera Parts Connection ($84 back on 2/7/15). All the other crap, such as Autozone, Lifto-Crap etc. worked ok at first, but as I recall didn't even last a year before loosing their ability to hold the hood. Plus those labeled as "Detomaso" were way too strong (I think I measured about 160 lbs per strut!). With the ones I have now mentioned above, I pop open the hood and can use one finger to raise or lower the hood, and to me that is the correct pressure to have on the hood. Anyway, 2 years later they are still working just as good as the day I bought them. So if you like the thin type of struts (not like the originals), these are my vote. Or when you get a few hours just read the 19 pages in sticky post #2 above.
