      looks great

      this item looks great. i bought two one for either side. the supports are supppper stiff. it works but now i need to put alot more pressure on it to pull it down. i guess thats not really a complaint since i had to hold it up with my head before the replacement

      They work

      Not much to say on these. I was tired of my back window falling on my head so I got these. Super easy to install, took about 5 minutes. They do the job but they are pretty strong though. It feels like the window is going to break when closing but hopefully they get a little softer as they break in.

      Like new!

      Had to replace the old shocks because the window would slowly close on it's own. I put in a couple of these in and it's almost tough to close with one hand! They work great and one is almost strong enough to keep the window up.

      Great replacement part

      This went on in about 2 minutes. Popped the old ones out and the new ones on with a flat head screwdriver and nothing else. Easy easy installation.

      2" lift

      Was pretty easy to install with my new shocks I purchased. Just enough for my 31's not too rub.

    Is this the cost for only one support?

    How do you remove a Omix-ADA strut without damage? A previous owner installed these on my wrangler but installed them upside down. I would like to turn them over to the correct orientation.

    • Use a small flat head screwdriver and slightly remove the metal "C" clip at each end. You do not need to remove that clip all the way, just slightly and pull on the strut and it should come off without any damage.
