I'm OCD about my car as you all know, I use it a lot and for everything. So when the trunk barely opens it is a pet peeve. I finally found a SOLID GAS strut that lives up to if not surpasses oem struts. I didn't want to get knocked out so spring was out of the question but oem were 67 a pop + shipping! I found these on Advance Auto parts, Enter TRT30 an get them out the door shipped for around 88$. 63 a pop plus 30% off.

Install took 5 mins, works great.

EDIT: THEY ARE OEM! THESE ARE STABILUS LIFT O MAT's, they appear to match oem exactly. Only weird thing is one is made in germany an the other is made in the USA.

Great find!
Will these fully open the trunk using the fob?

They seem like it, mine open the trunk half way but my trunk is off alignment bit and I have 5 lbs of sound reading on the trunk itself. So if your stock, I'd say yes.
