Wonder if the same applies to the laguna.
If you do need uprated struts there were some on EBay last week so maybe worth a look.

Cool Rear Spoiler

Hi Polecat
Lots of Laguna 1's including my own have spoilers fitted as standard and as far as I am aware the struts are the same as one's without.I
would imagine that the force required to actually close the tailgate if
converted to actual weight would be a lot more than the weight of a spoiler and the struts seem pretty robust anyway

The chap at renault parts dept was unsure so he rang the suppliers, rang me back and told me the the spoiler was 128.00 plus fitting kit at 11.06 inc vat (that would prob be 2 bolts a bit of masking tape a drill bit and filler/sealer) and the original gas struts would be ok.

I will prob look on fleabay for a spoiler
