Hello again all.

I was looking to order a pair of the tailgate lift supports for my friend's Volvo. I was looking to find the best price or if there are any other equivalents that are more readily available that can be used. Any suggestions?

I've tried ebay and am looking at some online parts places such as autopartswarehouse and online sources for local stores.

Thanks all!

Excellent! Thanks so much!

Never did update on this one!

I ordered the supports late this past Thursday and they arrived today! VERY FAST SHIPPING from that company! Great find and thanks again! Will install them in her car tomorrow!

Re: (doc_rage)

Good lord! How do you manage to compress these things enough to get them to line up on the mounting points?

I tried to install them today, but could not get them to compress AT ALL. Only needs about 1/8 inch of travel in, but it was impossible. Came home, put them on a jack and managed to compress them fine. How can I compress them to install them?

Thanks again!

I had a friend holding the trunk lid open all the way and tried that the first time around. He couldn't open the lid any further and it was the small amount that I need to get the other side to line up. I'll give it another shot. Thanks!

Finally got a chance to have the car back again. I ended up having to loosen the front mounting bracket.

These ones appear to be a bit longer than the Volvo ones, but they work great! Thanks again Big Will for the Groton suggestion, and thanks to everyone for their replies!
