  Perfect Fit for my hatchback GT!
By on 4/25/2014
My stock struts finally gave out. I purchased these struts from 50resto but was a little hesitant due to the cheap price. Upon opening the box, I discovered a pair of very quality struts! AND was even more pleased after the quick install. Opening my hatch was a breeze and the struts held up the hatch with no sagging.

I highly recommend these quality struts from 50resto.

  I don't know how I waited
By on 9/1/2014
Purchased recently while "restoring" my '90 GT I had packed away. Bought the car at 60,000 miles and even then the supports were shot. Managed to pop these on in about 20 minutes tops. Very simple installation and even one alone was enough to support the hatch - crazy right? If you're dealing with bad supports this is *easily* an investment you should make.

  As good as new

Replaced the old non working hatch struts on my '89 GT. Watched the video guide prior to purchase, and replacement couldn't have been easier. Took about 5 minutes and my hatch doesn't hit me in the head anymore.

  Awesome product

These literally snap right in and are much more convenient than the 2X4 I'v been using for the past couple years. Cheap solution to a fairly common foxbody problem.

  Perfect replacement
By on 10/19/2014
Obviously my original struts were shot. After nearly decapitating my 12 year old with the hatch the other day I decided to purchase these. I had these installed in 30 minutes, but I tooled around out in the garage and messed with a few other things while I did this install. I used a 2x4 to hold the hatch up, after installing one new strut, the hatch was able to stay up on it's own while I installed the second one. Simple install...great product! (1991 LX Hatch)

  heads up!!
By on 12/23/2013
I purchased an 86 ttop to restore and it was missing the hatch lift supports. I was a little worried they wouldn't hold up the hatch as it is very heavy, but I was sure late model knew what they where selling was the right part. Sure enough they are a quality product that work great. I like that they offer a warranty and you can't beat the price. Stop risking having your head taken off by your hatch and replace those supports!

  stoked!
By on 11/10/2014
struts on my 87 decided to stop holding the hatch up about a week ago when I was installing my brand new lx taillights (also purchased from latemodel) so decided to get some new ones. what a difference! stoked that the hatch lifts automatically now after you open it about a foot. Very reasonably priced and cant really beat 2 day shipping!

  Awesome tailgate struts!
By on 5/5/2014
After a year of dealing with my hatch struts that wouldn't hold up the hatch, I finally decided it was time to replace them and I'm glad I did. With no effort my hatch will open with a slight lift and stay open no problem . Super good price and quality strut would recommend them to anyone with a hatchback mustang !

By on 7/7/2014
i used these to replace an original pair of ford hatch struts that were more than 20 ears old and no longer functional. the video on LRS showed how to replace them step by step, and made it a snap for me to get them installed in about 15 minutes. the hatch now stays open like it's supposed to!

  Hatchback Strut broken clip
By on 6/2/2014
The clip broke on one of the new support struts, but I took one off of the old one and it worked okay. I figured that it should last longer than two minutes...
Stuts went on with no other problems.

I had some lazy struts on my 89 LX and was tired of having to use 2x4's to hold the hatch up. I ordered these replacement struts and now all is well. No more asking for an extra hand or using 2x4s. They shipped fast, were a breeze to install and work like they should.
