Thanks to the wonders of hydraulics, most cars nowadays have trunks and hatches that can be opened effortlessly. That's because apart from the supporting hinges, trunks and hatches now have lift struts to raise them automatically.Not only does a lift strut make loading cargo easier and more convenient, it also protects you from injury caused by any untoward accidents. If you've ever had the trunk or glass hatch crash down on your head or hands while you're loading cargo, you'll appreciate what the lift strut does.It's just like the shock absorbers supporting your car's weight. The strut contains either fluid or compressed air that lets it hold the trunk or glass hatch in a raised position. Although useful, however, the lift strut can wear out over time.You'll know it's time to replace it once the strut starts leaking fluid or when it no longer supports the trunk or hatch steadily. Don't fret. Carparts has plenty of lift struts in stock for you.
