    I know this is coming a bit late but if you like the way our pistons work on your doors you probably won't be happy with the Strongarm units. Ours have a roughly 25% stronger charge and have a dampening feature they lack at the end of extension. You will have to crank up your torsion bars for them to have a similiar opening effect but they won't be controlled as well at full extension. Just an FYI IMHO!

    Thanks Rob,

    I haven't yet been able to enjoy your struts I bought a couple years ago...I first have to fix my roofbox, then get a torsion bar adjustment. Hopefully this Spring!

    I was more considering the elCheapo struts as a spare part for myself or to help others in a jam.

    What is wrong with your roof box? I'm seriously considering bringing mine to Josh Bengston for a replacement job. Judging from his Facebook posts, it sounds like he has become quite a guru at replacing rusted roof boxes.

    I highly doubt rich needs a new roof box. Rich you could fix that yourself. I have done 2 roof box repairs including swapping a door and adjusting torsion bar. You may find after you re seat your roof box that your torsion bar doesn't need re adjusted. And if you used robs rivet method you won't even screw up your headliner .

    Rivet method?
