    Yes, I have a spoiler on mine. Good point.

    I do have a spoiler, so maybe that's it, but those things are very light...about five or six pounds, so there isn't much behind the "pop." I know I had one car that would launch a Grande from Starbucks all the way over the roof onto the hood!

    Are there different rear trunk struts for cars with / without the spoiler? If so would you also have the part numbers.
    I've added the factory rear spoiler and would upgrade the struts if they are different.

    I'm not aware of any special struts on the sedan. The coupe doesn't use struts. As far as the weight of the spoiler; even a few extra pounds is enough to make a difference. Next time you at your dealers, try a coupe or sedan without the spoiler.

    I agree that shouldn't affect it that much due to the weight of the spoiler, but our Miata when we added a spoiler had an adjustment to allow for the additional weight so I thought there might be. No issue as the trunk still open- thanks
