Re: Tailgat struts

Yes is the short answer.

Struts are rated in terms of load, so fit a powerful strut to a lighter tailgate and you'll receive an uppercut everytime you open the boot. Fit the type not up to the job and it won't hold it upright.



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
