I've seen these GM part numbers for the struts. 19235308 & 25749967. I don't know what the correct part is. I wasn't aware of the fact that there were two production runs for this year. I'm not sure which one I have. Mine shows a date of 9/02.

there was a redesigned trunk hinge used starting somewhere in the 2003 year model... (most 2003's i've seen had the 1st design)

when I look up trunk struts for a 2003 CTS the parts catalog asks me to identify if you have the new or original style hinges

the part numbers on the new style hinges are stamped into the metal of the hinge and are #15850030 and #15850031

the difference in the original vs new struts is in the length (something like .4 inches differnece)

OEM struts to fit the new hinges are #15911948
ACDelco (aftermarket) struts come in both new and original styles
1st design #19235308
2nd design #19203153
