Elite tailgate strut

Recommended Posts

Hi all. Does anyone know what else the support struts for the rear window of a 1978 Elite 504 are used on. At the moment i have to use mole grips to hold the release pull knob and then run round and lever the window open. Then a bit of wood holds it up. Not a good advert.

I also bought SJ struts in the last year. They fit fine, but they are a tad strong, and lift the lid up immediately when you open the tailgate. The guy from SJ suggested the lid should only just rise a little when opened.

try struts direct give them a length and fitment and they will do the rest they sell struts that you can release the gas to give a desired rate of lift i use these all the time at work they have a good service record with us
