    Wow! I really don't need two hood struts!

    The OEM one was much more tired than I thought.

    The new Strongarm until actually raises the hood once you get past about 1/2 up.

    Still, I like the idea of a backup...having had a hand semi-crushed by one, ages ago. Everything healed okay, but man, was it painful and swollen for a few days.

    I only have the one factory strut on there, and I think it works great. Never any fear of the hood falling on my head while checking the oil
