Don't waste your money

ProsNone that I can think of.
ConsDon't work for any amount of time.
Bought this in October of last year and put a pair of them on my Jeep shortly after. Since then I used them once where the held the lift gate open with out issue. After that they have refused to keep it open more than 1/3 of the way. Kinda pointless to have them if you have to add a stick to keep the door open!

Didn't fit
PostedAugust 26, 2015
Although the site stated that this support could replace the hatch support on an 09 Forester, it did not even remotely fit. Beware errors in the site's vehicle match!

Glad I replaced them
PostedApril 8, 2015
I gave the Overall 4stars, because I just installed them and the test of time will tell,I'm guessing it is a 5star rating though.
Installing,No problem,just pup the ends off the post and snap the new one on.DON'T POP THE SPRING CLIP OFF, the new ones!
It is best to have a extra set of arms to help support the tailgate
I waited to long to replace mine,you will be glad ,when you install your new ones.
